Contributed by: Don WinnerBy DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - I've been predicting this for about five years, and it's finally come true. The Petaquilla gold mine is now operational and turning a profit. Of course, this simple fact is driving the environmental extremists and activists crazy. There is a coordinated effort among the environmental activists in Panama to manipulate the media in order to cause harm to Petaquilla, no matter what. I received links to the following via email:
Expect More: The environmental activists who are dead-set against any kind of mining activity in Panama will come up with more crazy stuff. And, if they can't come up with anything true or real, they will create and manufacture false information, and then use the local media to disseminate, distribute, and spread those false reports. They see themselves as soldiers, and (in their minds anyway) the ends justifies the means. There will be more of this as the debate heats up over the even larger and more ambitious copper project which will dwarf the Petaquilla project. All I'm saying is - here it comes. Use your own brain and draw your own conclusions. Expect (much) more.
