Peru mining protest 2012 06 13

Andean people brandish machetes and sticks during a protest against plans for a huge open-pit Conga goldmine on Nov. 24, 2011 in Cajamarca, in the high Andes of Peru. The US-based mining company Newmont has promised modern reservoirs to replace threatened mountain lakes but there are also fears that pollution from the mine could affect agriculture and livestock.
