I was recently in Peru on vacation. This is a free country but much of the land including sensitive forests have already been auctioned out. My friends they felt that the best chance for Tibetans in Tibet is to work quickly with environmentalists and experts to try and create as many nature reserves as possible. In addition, we need to learn from mines that have been well developed because a world free of mining is not possible since we all use mining products.

Creating nature reserves I understand is a long process. Demonstrations ability to stop mining or bring development in local areas I understand has its limitations and often costs the lives of many innocent people. Once bad developers get contracts, they will use the military to execute their business.

For more info. about organizations that we can partner with are:

http://www.mountain.org/

It is critical such efforts are not politicized because this would be used by developers against us and potentially give them opportunity to put our Tibetan, Chinese and other foreign environmentalists to prison. If anyone has the time or interest to do more research about mining in Peru and the lessons we can learn from Peru feel free to contact me at densang123@yahoo.com
