The door is opened for an even harder line against those protesting a $4.8B gold and copper mine to be opened by Newmont (NEM) and Buenaventura (BVN) in Peru after Salomon Lerner - arguably the 2nd most powerful man in government - resigns. President Humala - who would have sided with the protesters a few years back - this week ordered the military to step in against the demonstrators.
