Vale: La Morada mining project in Peru

Vale carries out the mining project “La Morada” in Cajamarca, Peru, and is accused of instigating violence and militarization. Vale’s subsidiary Miski Mayo Mining Company S.A.C formed a paramilitary group which guards the area and threatens and/or harasses people from the surrounding communities. As a result of protests against the mining activities, several leaders were found at fault and sentenced with up to seven years in prison.[1]
