Preview Clip

A mine operated by Calgary-based Blackfire Explorations in the Mexican state of Chiapas that had been embroiled in a controversy around the death of a local activist was temporarily shut down December 8th over environmental concerns. Maude Barlow, the head of the Council of Canadians, said the murder of the activist wouldn't stop others from protesting mining activity in the country. (Three men were arrested in Abarca Roblero's death and a document from the state's Attorney General said all three were linked in some way to the Calgary-based Blackfire Exploration.)
