Blockade at Vale’s Onça Puma nickel project in Brazil ends
A blockade at Vale’s Onça Puma nickel project in Brazil has ended after the indigenous people who had occupied the area demanding better compensation left the plant, the miner said on Monday June 16.
Nearly 350 indigenous people of Xikrin do Cateté had blockaded the entrance of the plant in the Brazilian state of Pará on Monday, after having occupied the area the previous week from Thursday morning until Saturday evening. "Workers exit was not blocked. Only nickel production was paralysed," federal prosecutors from Pará state said.
