Outside foreign interests destroying an entire culture and way of life purely for profit and greed. Sounds like I have heard that story before....They will go in and destroy and pollute, and then leave those people with nothing but a devastated raped land. Thank You for spreading the word.

A nother example of foreign companies robbing countries of their natural resources ... Countries colonised these countries, killing the natives , robbing all natural resources and when forced to leave, left distrust, destruction and poverty behind ... And still the try to control the native people....

Other countries forces their mining on villages who owns the land by bulling and threats, but I am proud of them they ate standing up for themselves and their land no mines tearing up their mountains. Reminder what you America going to do for Fracking and Sand Tar Pipes ruining our land and poulterers of our water and air is it time for you to stand up?
