A third anti-mining activist has been assassinated. Just before Xmas an anti-mining activist was murdered. He was an important witness in the murder of another anti-mining activist last August. This week, the day after Xmas an eight months pregnant woman, also part of the anti-mining movement and a potential witness to the earlier murder was killed by gunmen. The Canadian mining company which was seeking mining rights and sueing the Salvadoran government for loss of profits is not commenting and has changed the email address and refusing to answer the phone in its Public Relations department. Alexis Stamboulis of CISPES talks to community radio about this latest outrage and the response of the Salvadoran people and their government.
