A young Peruvian girl stands out against an ominous backdrop near Cajamarca in northern Peru. Cajamarca in recent months has been the site of popular protests against a mining project that they fear will have severely negative environmental consequences. The protests have turned deadly on more than one occasion.

Location: near Cumbemayo, Cajamarca, Peru
