     Across Latin America, people and communities are rebelling against the encroachment of mining and other mega-industrial developments. Some governments, notably Bolivia, have recently nationalized foreign enterprises deemed to be acting against the national interest. But economic elites are fighting back. In Haiti, the post-earthquake humanitarian crisis continues, the government has declared the country "Open for business," and mining interests have staked claims over a huge part of the national territory.
