On January 10 of this year, 28 community members asked for a meeting with the company to discuss the numerous issues affecting their communities, as well as the extremely low economic compensation many of them received for their lands sold to Montana. After the meeting, however, Fernando Basilio Pérez was hit by the general manager of Montana and other community members were threatened with guns by the company’s private security. Soon after, nearly 650 disgruntled community members formed a roadblock to the mine which stopped the company’s operations for 13 days.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
