Questions Regarding Pact with Majaz Mines

By Silvia Mori

5th August 2007

The Front for the Sustainable Development of the Northern Border of Peru raised their voices in protest against the decision of the state to sign an agreement of legal stability for ten years with the mining firm Majaz, while there is an ongoing conflict with communities who say the mining firm is illegally occupying their lands and [the issue[ still has not been resolved.

The president of the Front, Carlos Martinez, criticised the attitude of the government in passing over the democratic decision of the people to carry out a popular consultation which will determine whether they desire a development model based upon mining or upon agriculture which will not cause environmental harm. The pact of legal stability guarantees tax and tribute stability as well as stability of the employee laws.
