Mining? No Thanks! One Month in Tambogrande
Add to selectionDownload PDF
 

The agricultural region of Tambogrande, located in northern Peru, is threatened by a mining project. For the past 4 years, a Canadian mining company has been trying to build three huge open-pit mines in Tambogrande. The local population is against the project, which would dislocate some 8,000 people and divert a river. In this heartwarming documentary, two families tell the story of Tambogrande. Like most of their fellow citizens, they fear the project will bring irreversible degradation of the environment in a region where agriculture has been the main source of income for a vast majority of the population for over 40 years. These families and the people of Tambogrande are determined to defend the land that feeds them.
