Tear gas

The morning of our second day at North Mara, we arrive minutes after a confrontation between artisanal miners and what appeared to be Tanzanian police forces had ended. The “intruders” tell us that police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at them chase them out of the waste rock. “We are just going to collect waste”, says one miner. “Why do they shoot at us?”
