Protest against the Crucitas mine

Costa Rica's highest court ordered Industrias Infinito, a local subsidiary of a Canadian company Infinito Gold Ltd., to stop the construction of an open-pit gold mine near the border with Nicaragua, upholding an injunction filed by environmentalists who say the project violates Costa Rica's constitutional rules on the environment.
