Colombia: major mine blocked by Indigenous Peoples

The mine of BHP Hilton in Cerro Matoso (Montelíbano, Córdoba Department), producing 4% of global nickel, has been blocked by pickets of Native Americans of the Zenú nationality. 

The protesters demand payment of environmental compensations for the pollution caused by the mine since 30 years ago.
