Torex Gold (TXG) entrances again blocked by locals

On Sunday, the entrance to the Torex Gold Media Luna gold mine in Guerrero State Mexico was once again blockaded by locals protesting against the environmental damage being caused by the company. The main bone of contention, once again, is how the fish population has died off in the local river since the start-up of operations which has deprived local fishermen of their trade. The affected families have for months demanded compensation from the mine, which has refused to talk to them. The protest continues, so does TXG's indifference towards locals.
