Vietnamese protest mining project

Bauxite mining plan sparks biggest civil protest movements the country has ever seen.

    A massive mining project in central Vietnam has created one of the biggest civil protest movements the country has ever seen.

    Domestic media outlets are banned from reporting on the proposed Bauxite mine, which critics say threatens major environmental damage, for little economic benefit.

    Al Jazeera has obtained exclusive pictures of the site, and spoke to some of the people opposed to its development in the country's Central Highlands.
