Gran Colombia Gold ( loves its workforce

Tomorrow Monday the workers employed* by Serafino Iacono's joke of a mining company Gran Colombia Gold ( will vote for what seems like the 50th time to go on strike. This time it's because GCM hasn't kept its promise to improve pay and conditions as it said it would by June 22nd, a date it confirmed and ratified with both workers and government. Because that's how this company works, it lies and cheats and gets your money, then flushes it down its own worst practices toilet. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Don't expect Fino to be at the meeting or the negotiations, he's too busy living it up at his new boutique hotel in Italy.

*in fact GCM isn't much more than a very large toll milling operation and the combo of thousands of informals and a company that doesn't give a rat's ass gives you one of the worst environmental polluters you can imagine.
