The dispute continues at Freeport.  Most recent news comes in the form of allegations of sabotage, after the mine had to shutdown operations due to problems in the pipeline system that carries materials from its processing centers to the port.  At the same time, workers are continuing to block roads, the port, and the local airport, disrupting supplies to the mine operations and using company machinery to reenforce their blockades.
