Panama: Popular protests against mining contract

Panama City, Sep 2 (Prensa Latina) Leaders of trade union and popular organizations are deciding on new actions, after a week marked by protests against the contract signed between the Government and Minera Panama.

For next Tuesday, the social and environmentalist organizations called for a national march that will reach the Legislative to demand that the deputies reject the mining contract.

In this regard, one of the spokespersons of the “Alianza Pueblo Unido por la Vida”, Marcos Andrade, confirmed to Prensa Latina that street demonstrations will be permanent in rejection of this text, which violates national sovereignty and threatens nature.

The general secretary of the National Confederation of Independent Trade Union Unity denounced that the pact involves concessions to foreign companies and affects not only the area where the copper mine is located, but compromises almost half of the national territory, with the consequent plundering of natural resources.
