Three dozen non-governmental organizations that oppose mining met today in Managua to form a coalition to unify efforts against such projects.
"It's a need to articulate our struggles, because mining provides a worrying trend for Central America, in some cases as in Guatemala, the government has declared a state of siege due anti-mining protests, in Honduras people have suffered threats, imprisonment and even deaths, in Nicaragua this year there were over 40 detained for protesting," said to Acan-Efe the deputy director of the Humboldt Center, Victor Campos.
