About fifty protesters, including members of Greenpeace, set up a camp on the access road to Barrick Gold’s Veladero and Pascua Lama mines in Argentina.
The protest was done to promote the Glacier Law enacted last October. Police personnel acted to clear the road, breaking and removing the chains placed by protesters to remove the container that were blocking the entrance.
