CSL Group

In Panama, there was a recent clash involving fishermen and police during a protest against mining activities. The conflict occurred as the Montreal-based CSL Group’s bulk carrier, MV CSL Tarantau, attempted to dock at the Caribbean port of Punta Rincon. Montreal-based Canada Steamship Lines (CSL) controlled 2013 built 71K DWT MV CSL Tarantau found itself amidst heightened tensions due to ongoing anti-mining demonstrations. The focal point of these protests has been Minera Panama, a subsidiary of Canada’s First Quantum Minerals (FQM), which has been in the spotlight for the past two weeks over a contentious new contract with the Panamanian government. Local fishermen, who have been actively blockading the terminal, were involved in the disturbance. During the incident, they called for a restrained use of force by authorities. The situation escalated when authorities attempted to provide an emergency escort for the Montreal-based Canada Steamship Lines (CSL) controlled 2013 built 71K DWT MV CSL Tarantau, which was carrying a coal load. There was concern over the spontaneous combustion risk of the cargo if it overheated. The protesters responded by throwing stones and blunt homemade objects, leading to the cancellation of the docking operation. The MV CSL Tarantau had departed from Colombia at the end of October, arriving during a period of heightened local unrest. These protests were triggered following the signing of a 20-year contract renewal by Panama President Laurentino Cortizo. On the same day as the incident, the mine’s union announced that it had reached an agreement with the company to ensure salaries, as the ongoing protests and blockades had prevented workers from carrying out their duties. 17-November-2023
