Deep Dive: Digging deep into stories that matter

In an era of eroded journalism, fragmented audiences and consolidated corporate power, it takes 40 journalists from 15 countries, working together to protect themselves, to tackle a series of stories bigger than nations. An unprecedented collaborative investigation that uncovers the dangerous practices of three mining companies operating in India, Guatemala and Tanzania, Green Blood exposes crimes against humanity and the environment. Taking a behind-the-scenes approach, international journalists support the work of local reporters who have been threatened, jailed or killed as the result of their pursuit of the truth. In India, a murdered journalist’s coverage of the sand mining mafia is continued by a colleague. In Guatemala, a Q'eqchi' journalist confronts the police and politicians protecting a nickel mine that pollutes and poisons the Indigenous population with impunity. In Tanzania, journalists struggle to report on the impact of a remote gold mine (whose majority shareholder is Canadian behemoth Barrick), which deters the community’s artisanal miners with rape and murder. Angie Driscoll
