Monday, May 13, 2019


More than 50,000 people took to the streets in northeast Colombia on Friday in an attempt to end a $1 billion gold mining project they say will pollute their water supply.

The United Arab Emirates reportedly invested $1 billion in Minesa, but the project is opposed by many people in Santander province, according to Colombia Reports.
