APTOPIX Peru Anti-Mining Farmers Photo Gallery

In this May 30, 2015 photo, the foot of a day laborer is surrounded by garlic bulbs as she works in a field in the Tambo Valley, Arequipa, Peru. The woman earns 20 US dollars for a 9 hour workday, that includes a 30 minute break to eat. Most living in the fertile coastal valley say they’re more than happy to sacrifice the current crop if it means preventing Mexico’s biggest mining company from going ahead with a copper extraction project they fear will contaminate the Tambo Valley.
