Example 1: On this blog, I wrote about a massacre that happened on August 17th. It says, "around 7pm, in the community of Casa Zinc, which is part of township EL Dorado in the municipality of Monte Cristo, Sure de Bolivar, twenty armed men entered the community and identified themselves as the Black Eagles, which is a known paramilitary group. They gathered the community together and assassinated Pedro Sierra, a small farmer. They then tortured and cut out the tongues of Ivan Serrano, a local shop owner, and Luis Albeiro Ropero, a young miner, before they killing them. This all happened while the Colombian Army was just twenty minutes away."
"Coincidence": On August 29th, a Canadian mining company entitled, "MIDASCO CAPITAL CORP. - TSX-V Symbol MGC" recieved 10,000 hectares in mining licenses in Sur de Bolivar exactly where the massacre took place.

Example 2: On this blog I posted a video entitled, "Colombia Gold Rush" produced by Al Jazeer on Fault Lines about the Canadian Gold mining Company working in Marmato, Antioquia. if you have not watched it you should, just click on the link.
"Coincidence" On September 1, Father José Reinel Restrepo Idárraga was murdered in Marmato, Antioquia. Father Restrepo was an outspoken critic of a Canadian mining operation in Marmato. The details surrounding Father Restrepo’s murder are unclear but people are saying it was related to his activism and organizing against the Canadian gold mining Company.
