    Default Action for Chile - HELP!

    Subject: action for Chile

    Dear friends who care about our earth and people.

    Judge for yourself if you want to take action.

    In the Valle de San Felix, the purest water in Chile runs from 2 rivers, fed
    by 2 glaciers. Water is a most precious resource, and wars will be fought
    for it.

    Indigenous farmers use the water, there is no unemployment, and they provide
    the second largest source of income for the area.

    Under the glaciers has been found a huge deposit of gold, silver and other
    minerals. To get at these, it would be necessary to break, to destroy the
    glaciers - something never conceived of in the history of the world - and to
    make 2 huge holes, each as big as a whole mountain, one for extraction and
    one for the mine's rubbish tip.

    The project is called PASCUA LAMA. The company is called Barrick Gold.

    The operation is planned by a multi-national company, one of whose members
    is George Bush Senior.

    The Chilean Government has approved the project to start this year, 2006.

    The only reason it hasn't started yet is because the farmers have got a
    temporary stay of execution.

    If they destroy the glaciers, they will not just destroy the source of
    especially pure water, but they will permanently contaminate the 2 rivers so
    they will never again be fit for human or animal consumption because of the
    use of cyanide and sulphuric acid in the extraction process.

    Every last gram of gold will go abroad to the multinational company and not
    one will be left with the people whose land it is. They will only be left
    with the poisoned water and the resulting illnesses.

    The farmers have been fighting a long time for their land, but have been
    forbidden to make a TV appeal by a ban from the Ministry of the Interior.

    Their only hope now of putting brakes on this project is to get help from
    international justice.

    The world must know what is happening in Chile. The only place to start
    changing the world is from here.

    We ask you to circulate this message amongst your friends in the following
