CABANAS, EL SALVADOR

Escalating violence against anti-mining campaigners

 
Escalating violence against anti-mining capmpaigners in Cabanas, El Salvador On 26th December, Dora Alicia Recinos Sorto became the third victim of a wave of violence against environmental campaigners in the Cabañas Region of El Salvador, where community members are protesting against the re-opening of a Gold Mine by Canadian Company Pacific Rim.

Dora Alicia was a member of the Cabañas Environmental Committee, and had been active in opposing the mine. She was eight months pregnant when she was shot dead, and her two year old son was also wounded in the attack.

Her murder comes six days after the fatal shooting of Ramiro Rivera Gomez, Vice President of the Cabañas Environmental Committee, who had survived being shot eight times in August this year. In June, another environmental campaigner, Gustavo Marcelo Rivera Moreno, had been tortured and killed. Many other members of the community have received death threats, including youth workers and journalists for the local community radio station Radio Victoria, and the local priest Father Luis Quintanilla narrowly escaped an attempted kidnapping.

In Mexico, Mariano Abarca Roblero campaigned against the environmentally destructive open-pit Barium mine Blackfire, a World Bank project. He was shot to death on the evening of November 27, 2009, in front of his house in Chicomuselo, Chiapas.

The World Does Not Need Another Gold Mine. 18.Mar.2010 17:34

The Crying need is for a 'return to the land', and for the society to support the peasant class to grow organic communal food, not do more and more mineral mines that are merely decorative or used in the Military-Industrial-Prison complex. This killing of activists for the environment, is another example of the European Conquistadores killing of indigenous peoples by the millions, and theft of their lands and ecological organic living conditions.

People need clean air, land, and water and the Canadian Companies mining in Canada and around the world are notorious for the polluted destruction of the envirnment, and their abuse of the workers and peasants and their unions who support improved non polluting living and working conditions.

Rule of the companies by hiring mercenaries and gangsters to kill is called 'fascism' and is illegal in each and every country of the world by the anti-fascist covenants signed on to by the western world after the second world war. Corporate or monopoly rule at the expense of the people is exactly the model of Fascist Italy under the dictatorship of Mussolini. It was wrong to the environment then and is wrong to the environment now. The peoples hava a law to make sure the pollution ends before any destruction of their organic world takes place. Viva the ALBA, and Banco Del Sud. End foreign imperialist domination and destruction of the environment for maximum profits.
