The Clavo Rico open-pit gold mine, owned by US-based Razor Resources, has ushered in the arrival of over a hundred small-scale open pit mines in the otherwise sleepy town of Corpus, Honduras, permanently altering the entire landscape and, with it, the livelihoods of surrounding communities. In the neighboring town of Concepción de María, farmers are organizing to prevent this destruction from spreading into their lands but a new mining law passed by the military-backed government stands in their way. Their attempts to build sustainable farming communities from the ground-up are thus in jeopardy. The case illustrates the tension between two visions of development: one where local communities take control over their resources and destinies and another where foreign capital penetrates the landscape, driving people off their land and subjecting them to the needs of the global economy.
