Talodi citizens continue to fight against the degradation of their lives and for the preservation of their environment against gold mining companies using cyanide.
Multiple memorandums have been submitted to the city government demanding the closure of these companies and the last one was filed on Wednesday 2/10/2019.
On Thursday 3/10/2019 citizens went out in a procession expressing their rejection of these companies demanding their closure. The procession arrived at the Nicola mine at 1:00 PM where they were met with gunfire by the Rapid Support Forces and Security Operations which angered the citizens who then burned the Junaid 1 and Junaid 2 mines belonging to the Rapid Support Forces and the Al-Sunut mine belonging to the Security Services.
