  • Scavenging for gold in Guatemala

    Many sectors of the global economy may be struggling in the recession, but precious metals remain a valuable commodity. Over the last 10 years, the price of gold has risen sharply, peaking at $1,921 an ounce in September and now hovering around $1,730 an ounce. In the first of a four-part series on how people are taking extreme measures to get their hands on precious metals, Al Jazeera takes a look at Guatemalans who are braving dangerous conditions to search for gold. David Mercer reports from Guatemala City, the capital.

  • Guatemala: Mayan K'iche reaffirm opposition to mining operations

    The Mayan K'iche' indigenous community in Guatemala commemorated the 3rd anniversary of a referendum in which it rejected mining activities imposed by the State. In the referendum, 28,209 people voted 'no' to mining exploration and exploitation as well as the construction of hydro-electric plants, based on the argument that such activities affect all ground and underground resources. In the case of Guatemala, the referendum received widespread support because its supporters say that the State imposes an exclusive and repressive development model on the surrounding communities.

    From Rights Action (http://www.rightsaction.org/video/elestor/): On January 8th and 9th 2007, hundreds of police and soldiers in Guatemala forcibly evicted the inhabitants of several communities who were living on lands that a Guatemalan military government had granted to Canadian mining company INCO in 1965. Local indigenous people claim the land to be theirs, and resent the exploitation of a foreign corporation. Canada's Skye Resources now lays claim to the land, and paid workers a nominal sum to destroy people's homes. With the force of the army and police, company workers took chainsaws and torches to people's homes, while women and children stood by. Skye Resources claims that they maintained "a peaceful atmosphere during this action."
