Green Office News: Peruvians protesting over environmental pollution caused by illegal gold mining

Peruvians are expressing their anger at illegal gold mining in Madre de Dios because it’s causing environmental damage. Miners operating in illegal mines or breaking environmental rules, if caught, face up to 10years in prison. Critics argue that they have tried to get a mining permit but are unable to do so due to bureaucracy. If a law passes to combat illegal mines, thousands of people will lose jobs and it is estimated that up to 50’000 miners do not have a licence to operate in Peru.
