La Puya, San Pedro Ayampuc, Guatemala

Protesters block the entrance gate to EXMINGUA's El Tambor gold mine. Since 2 March 2012, residents from San Jose del Golfo and San Pedro Ayampuc have blocked the entrance to the proposed mining site. The project, owned by Canadian mining company Radius Gold, is run by its local subsidiary EXMINGUA. Residents from the communities claim the industrial activity in their territories as illegal since they were not appropriately consulted before the mine began operating.
