Robin Williams said it best: Blame Canada

This man is dead

Nice, friendly, unassuming race, the Canadians. Never hurt a fly. Unless of course you threaten to block their mining operations and that’s when people suddenly get shot dead by “unknown assassins”. This from narcosphere news (by the way, there’s plenty of coverage in Spanish language, but amazingly, incredibly, astoundingly the story has been ignored by EngLang media).

Mariano Abarca Roblero, one of Mexico’s most prominent anti-mining organizers, was shot to death on the evening of November 27, 2009, in front of his house in Chicomuselo, Chiapas. He left behind a wife and four children. Another man was wounded in the shooting. The incident comes just days after Abarca filed charges against two Blackfire employees, Ciro Roblero Perez and Luis Antonio Flores Villatoro, for threatening to shoot him if he didn’t stop organizing against Canadian mining company Blackfire’s barium mine in Chicomuselo continues here.
