Drug Dealers Bring The Wild West to Marseilles (Episode #3040)

KQED World: Sat, Oct 13, 2012 -- 6:30 AM

FRANCE: WILD WEST IN MARSEILLES: The drugs trade is flourishing in the northern part of Marseilles and gang warfare is raging. 20 people have already been killed in gang related violence this year. Police and other officials are giving the area a wide berth. Residents are largely left to cope on their own in troubled neighborhoods. The northern part of Marseille is home to the poorest of the poor. Half of the area's young people are unemployed, a fact that plays into the hands of weapons and drug dealers. For years the projects have been controlled by gangs who are waging a brutal conflict with each other. So far politicians have proven ineffective when it comes to restoring order. Now the mayor is calling for the army to be sent in.

Dreams of a Spanish Gold Rush (Episode #3039)

Decentralization was supposed to secure Spain's future, but that was before the economic crisis hit. Many of the country's regions are deeply in debt or even teetering on bankruptcy. Now the principality of Asturias wants to help itself by mining for gold. Asturias sits on one of the biggest untapped gold deposits in western Europe. Officials hope opening up new gold mines will create thousands of new jobs. But the plans have sparked protests. Many farmers fear that mining for gold could trigger the release of dangerous chemicals and endanger their crops.
