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!
