Human Rights Lawyer speaks of the injustices in the Chaupe family case

Conga Conflict

(Video by Alexander Luna)

Mirtha Vasquez, the human rights lawyer who is defending the Chaupe family as they defend their right to live on their land, speaks of the injustices the family is facing at the hands of the authorities and the mining company Yanacocha- who are desperate for the family´s land to execute their destructive open pit mining project.

She speaks of the violence the family has been subject to, the ludicrous claims of the mining company, and the trauma and harrassement the family face from being subject to this judicial persecution.
