TRANSIT - DOCfiled'17 Exhibits

15/10/ 2017

"Cientos de miles de litros de gasolina viajan cada día de forma ilegal de Nigeria a Benín; millones de toneladas de caucho se exportaron de la Amazonía con el auge de la goma en el siglo XIX; centenares de mineros encaran cada día un viaje al corazón de la tierra en busca de minerales y esmeraldas en Potosí y Boyacá. La falta de bienes o recursos en unos casos, el deseo de obtenerlos o la ambición por explotarlos, sigue produciendo en la actualidad infinidad de desplazamientos de mercaderías y personas alrededor del mundo, dentro y fuera de los países productores. Y siempre hay consecuencias."
