According to the report by the US-based Carnegie Institution for Science, 15,810 acres of rainforest in Peru’s Madre de Dios region, home to various nature and indigenous reserves as well as a booming eco-tourism industry, have vanished per year since the start of the 2008 global economic crisis.

L'or du Pérou attire de nouveaux conquistadors - Extractivisme - Basta !

L’#or du #Pérou attire de nouveaux conquistadors - Extractivisme - Basta !
http://www.bastamag.net/article3221.html

Ce sera l’une des plus grandes mines d’or du monde : le projet Conga, mené par l’entreprise états-unienne Newmont, dans laquelle BNP Paribas a investi via une filiale au Luxembourg. Le gigantesque projet minier risque de priver les populations locales de leurs ressources en #eau. Et suscite de fortes mobilisations réprimées par les forces de l’ordre péruviennes… formées par la gendarmerie française. Un projet qui entache le mandat du président, Ollanta Humala, élu grâce à un programme de défense des paysans et du petit peuple. Reportage.
