The story of a Peruvian paradise lost after a devastating mercury spill at the Yanacocha mine. The environmental catastrophe turned Choropampa, a quiet village into a hotbed of civil resistance. The mine, partially owned by the World Bank, claim the problem was quickly resolved - the villagers tell a starkly different story.
