GHF-Funded Filmmaker Calls on International Community to Save Mes Aynak
October 02, 2012
In 2009, MCC gave archaeologists three years to excavate the site, despite experts’ estimates that a proper job would take 30 years. Today, the Afghan archaeologists who do the majority of the excavations don’t have access to computers or digital cameras and have been sleeping on the floor in a wooden shack on site. Meanwhile, three teams of international archaeologists, led by a French delegation, are rushing to relocate as many objects as possible, not bothering with anything that can’t be moved.

1. If Afghanistan didn't want this, they shouldn't have attacked us on 9-11.
Oh, that's right: Afghanistan didn't attack us on 9-11.
The trillions in mineral resources won't go to help the people of Afghanistan, either. The money will line the pocket of the Chinese and Western elites who "bankroll" the extraction of resources.
The cultural treasures lost at Aynak are priceless.
