This weekends I have to say was a sad one, unlike many weekends ive lived in my country. The native rose up cause they are against a mining project inside their native reserve. Last year an agreement was reached between the Central Government and the local Native Government where the autonomy of their territory would be respected. But again the congress tries to pass a new law bypassing the agreement.
Now the extra official death toll is around 5 and over 50 people injured by police repression. They shutdown cellphone signals and still haven't reestablished them for the Ngobe Bugle reserve (area of conflict) and shut down the electric supply of part of the area. The police tied up children in chains to take them into custody and separated them from their parents.
So the conflict is around 150000 Ngoble Bugle Native Panamanians vs 25 billion pounds of bronze.
Just needed to let it out of my system. thanks for reading.
WOW! So sad to read this. Although I'm lost for words, I dearly hope that this venting helped you.
