Thank you for sharing Cal noted. People appear to be a disposable commodity when it comes to mining.

Does Mexico have laws that require evacuation? Or was this deliberately done to the First Nations people?

These poor people will pay a heavy price in their future health due to this criminal action.

Oil spills all over the world. And still more places are being found and drilled. But Insanity will end, when Earth gets so contaminated that no living creature will survive. Except, maybe, cockroaches.
