31 NGOs Sign Letter on Minas Conga Protests
08 December 2011
Two networks of European NGOs, CIDSE and Plataforma Europa Perú (of which the PSG is a member), today sent an open letter to President Ollanta Humala in response to recent events in the Cajamarca region. The letter expresses concern over the breakdown of talks with locals protesting against the Minas Conga project and over the government's decision to declare a state of emergency in the area. It also requests that the project's Environmental Impact Assessment be re-examined.
