Yamila Osorio on Tia Maria

Yamila Osorio is the governor of the Arequipa region of Peru and in this interview with Peru's national newspaper La Republica she talks Tia Maria. It's long and in Spanish and I'm too busy with the Weekly to translate today, but anyone with an interest in the saga should read it (there's always Google Translate at a pinch) because it's the single smartest attitude I've seen from any player in this crazy situation. And even though she's just 29 years old (the youngest regional governor in Peru) she's a world wiser than the pro and anti mining dumbos trying to ram ideas down people's throats.
