Some minutes ago I got a mail from friends in Peru. 
On the 5 of june 2000, 6 years ago,  happened the big mercury accident in Choropampa. A truck lost 151 kg of mercury and the responsible mining company paid the people to collect it from the street. This people, also children, didn´t have an idea of the danger of mercury and a lot of them still suffer from this tragedy.

According to the Mail, the people of Choropampa are still calling for justice and bether medical aid!
