    Over the holidays , two more anti-mining activists were murdered in the Cabanas region in El Salvador. Area residents allege the Canadian gold mining company, Pacific Rim, is connected to incidents of violence and threats against activists who oppose mining in the community. Because of widespread opposition to the potential environmental and social costs, El Salvador has passed a moratorium against mining. In response, Pacific Rim is suing the Salvadoran government under the Central American Free trade Agreement, through it’s Nevada subsidiary.
