The Last Place on Earth
The project was created over 4 days in the Apuseni Mountains in Romania. It has been done with the help of local campaigners Tică Darie and Sorin Jurca and aims to show the extent of environmental and social damage that has been done as a direct result of copper mining in Roșia Montană area. Campaigners are aware of the economic importance of mining since there is archaeological and metallurgical evidence of gold mining in the 'Golden Quadrilateral' of Transylvania since the late Stone Age. However, they are opposing the use of cyanide and are highlighting the damage that has been done at Roșia Poieni to raise awareness about the irreparable impact against the environment.
