Ecuador: Protests Mount over Mining, Oil

Some 30 protesters crashed the opening of the sixth Expominas trade  fair at the Quito Exhibition Center April 3, where Ecuador's  government  sought to win new investors for the mineral and oil sectors.  The  protesters, mostly women, interrupted the event's inaugural speech  with  an alternative rendition of the song "Latinoamérica"   by the Puerto Rican hip-hop outfit Calle 13, with lyrics referencing   places in the country threatened by mining: "You cannot buy Intag, you   cannot buy Mirador, you can't buy Kimsacocha, you can't buy my   Ecuador."
