A table for safety

, May 24, 2014

An opponent of the Tambor mining project takes shelter behind a table in front of a line of riot police evicting protesters against the project in the community of La Puya, San Jose del Golfo, on May 23. Around 20 people were left injured when security forces carried out the eviction of people opposed to the mining project located in San Jose del Golfo, with their orders being to make it possible for the mining company's machinery to be brought into the area. The residents of the surrounding communities in the area had blocked the entrance to the mine, establishing a permanent camp there, since the beginning of March 2012, according to local media. - Reuters
