Townspeople being attacked in La Puya versus Vancouver/US owned mine right now

La Puya resistance to USA-Canadian mine in San Jose del Golfo, Guatemala, under attack by security forces right now. Numerous injuries, but most recent reports say people still holding the line against riot police trying to force heavy equipment into the mine site. Mine is currently owned by US-based KCA resources, but Vancouver-based Radius Gold (Suite 650, 200 Burrard Street, Vancouver, BC, Canada, Tel: 604 801-5432), the mine site’s original “owner” still holds significant shares.
