PBI on mining in Colombia

Peace Brigades International (PBI) is an organization that monitors human rights abuses in Colombia. In its November monthly report that you can read right here, it looks at the mining industry in the country.

Do not expect a pro-mining standpoint, but do expect to learn a whole lot about what mining is like in Colombia today and how it affects the lives of normal people in this extensive and detailed report that goes into several case studies. Anyone interested in the mining industry in Colombia and is fed up with reading the shiny, happy "nothing ever goes wrong here" bullshit pro-mining stance of the junior industry would to well to read this PBI report and get some balance. If you're going to go mining, do it right.
