For one afternoon only, Mexico formally welcomed international border-crossers, coming south from the United States, into the country at a temporary checkpoint located at the mouth of an underground drain.

IRIN Middle East | EGYPT: Bedouins begin to demand equal citizenship rights | Egypt | Economy | Education | Gender Issues | Governance | Human Rights | Security | Geopolitics | Scoop.it
SINAI, 16 June 2011 (IRIN) - Moussa Al Dalah, a 35-year-old tribal leader from Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, knew it would be a risky step to try and take his employer to court over alleged discrimination: He could easily end up in prison.

"I had to tell the employer that the Bedouins won't be able to accept humiliation forever," Al Dalah told IRIN. "He used to give factory workers from other parts of Egypt higher salaries and better treatment."

UPDATE: Next steps against the Melancthon mega-quarry #Canada

UPDATE: Next steps against the Melancthon mega-quarry #Canada | Geopolitics | Scoop.it
The Council of Canadians has been a vocal opponent of the proposed Melancthon mega-quarry.

The Highland Companies, backed by a Boston-based multi-billion dollar hedge fund, the Baupost Group, is proposing a massive 2,316-acre open pit limestone mega quarry in Melancthon Township, 100 kilometres north of Toronto. The edge of the quarry would border the Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO Biosphere reserve. It would destroy productive farmland, pollute the air with the thousands of 40-ton trucks needed for it every day, and threaten the area’s water. Below the proposed quarry lies the Amabel-Lockport-Guelph aquifer that forms the headwaters of five major river systems - the Pine, the Grand, the Nottawasaga, the Saugeen and the Beaver - that are important drinking water sources for more than a million people.
