[Nettime-ro] progresul avansatilor occidentali maCht ganz glucklich + frei


In the Valle de San Felix, the purest water in Chile runs from 2 rivers,
>fed by 2 glaciers. Water is a most precious resource, and wars will be fought
>for it.
>
>Indigenous farmers use the water, there is no unemployment, and they
>provide the second largest source of income for the area.
>
>Under the glaciers has been found a huge deposit of gold, silver and other
>minerals. To get at these, it would be necessary to break, to destroy the
>glaciers - something never conceived of in the history of the world - and
>to make 2 huge holes, each as big as a whole mountain, one for extraction and
>one for the mine's rubbish tip.
>
>The project is called PASCUA LAMA. The company is called Barrick Gold.
>
>The operation is planned by a multi-national company, one of whose members
>is George Bush Senior.
>
>The Chilean Government has approved the project to start this year, 2006.
>
>The only reason it hasn't started yet is because the farmers have got a
>temporary stay of execution. If they destroy the glaciers, they will not
>just destroy the source of specially pure water, but they will permanently
>contaminate the 2  rivers so they will never again be fit for human or
>animal consumption because of the use of cyanide and sulphuric acid in the
>extraction process.
>
>Every last gramme of gold will go abroad to the multinational company and
>not one will be left with the people whose land it is.They will only be
>left with the poisoned water and the resulting illnesses.
>
>The farmers have been fighting a long time for their land, but have been
>forbidden to make a TV appeal by a ban from the Ministry of the Interior.
>
>Their only hope now of putting brakes on this project is to get help from
>international justice.
>
>The world must know what is happening in Chile. The only place to start
>changing the world is from here.
>
>We ask you to circulate this message amongst your friends in the following
>way. Please copy this text, paste it into a new email adding your signature

  to be forwarded to the Chilean government.
>
>No to Pascua Lama Open-cast mine in the Andean Cordillera on the
>Chilean-Argentine frontier.
>
>We ask the Chilean Government not to authorize the Pascua Lama project to
>protect the whole of 3 glaciers, the purity of the water of the San Felix
>Valley and El Transito, the quality of the agricultural land of the region
>of Atacama, the quality of life of the Diaguita people and of the whole
>population of the region.
