http://www.euronews.net/ Indigenous protesters are blockading the Pan-American Highway in Panama to demand that a mining ban in their homeland remain in place.




The protest began on Monday after the government approved a series of projects in the western part of the Central American country.




Indigenous people say the plans would spoil pristine rainforest areas and force their communities to relocate.




The country's president, Ricardo Martinelli, said he would not be strong-armed into changing his mind.
