my mom has been a cop for over 20 years and she is the one who constantly warns me about police aggression and young male cops and told me that if you’re ever alone on a rural road and a cop throws their lights on to put on your four ways and drive to the next gas station before stopping because so many cops are scum and it’s not worth the chance of getting hurt. the fact that SHE feels the need to tell me this shit scares me to death
Manica, Mozambique - They are washing the soil, day and night, hoping to reveal gold.
In this area of Mozambique, 70-80 percent of gold prospectors arrive illegally from the neighbouring country of Zimbabwe. The nuggets, which officially belong to the state, end up in the hands of Nigerian, Somalian, Zimbabwean, Israeli and Lebanese merchants.
The state is left with polluted ground and river water, unsuitable for drinking or watering, and with gold-diggers’ damaged health.
The miners claw at the earth between 15 and 20 metres beneath the surface, in an extensive tunnel system.
