Why did the US pressure Bangladesh to reopen a controversial coal mine?

    Asia Energy is the company behind the mining project, and it has sity percent US investment. The pit was closed after three were shot and killed during a peaceful protest demonstration, and the company’s shares crashed within a day of Bangladesh revoking mining rights. Asia Energy then changed it’s name to Global Coal Management, and still with US investment, is pushing to reopen the mine.

    In short, and as said in Team America, The corporate fatcats sit in their corporation buildings and they’re all corporation-y and then they make money. This is straight cut and dry companies exploiting underdeveloped nations and their peoples. Thousands of indigenous Bangladeshi natives will be forced to relocate outside of the country.
