Miners Protest Threatened Mine Suspension in #Greece
Local Editor

A group of miners from northern Greece clashed with police Wednesday outside government buildings in Athens during a protest called after their Canada-based mining company threatened to suspend investments in the country.

The miners from the Eldorado Gold mine in the Halkidiki region were seeking assurances for their jobs after Eldorado Gold said Monday it would suspend operations except for maintenance and environmental work on Sept. 22 unless licenses it said were pending were issued in time.

The government says the company has not provided some required information for the pending permits, and says they will go to arbitration, which is to begin in the coming days.

The mines in Halkidiki have faced vehement opposition from many in the local communities, who say they fear widespread pollution and the destruction of forests. The company says it is cleaning up pollution left by its predecessors and that it carries out extensive environmental restoration work.
