Shoot: Toxics Rosia Montana Action in Hungary

GP01H14
Activists protest in front of the Hungarian Ministry of Environment to demand measures concerning the gold mine in Rosia Montana and to remind the public of the danger of possible cyanide pollution.
On January 30th 2000, the dam containing toxic waste material from the Baia Mare Aurul gold mine in North Western Romania burst and released 100,000 cubic meters of waste water, heavily contaminated with cyanide, into the Lapus and Somes tributaries of the river Tisza, one of the biggest in Hungary.
Cyanide is highly toxic, and is lethal to humans and other species even in very small doses.
