This is an article written in rabble.ca that looks at the issue that is brought up from a PSA we produced for the Canadian Network on Corporate Accountability.
“At MiningWatch we live and breathe news about mining. But what’s good news for companies and their investors may be bad news for affected communities and anyone concerned about issues like human rights, the environment, economic justice, government accountability… (the list is long). We have to give ourselves a slap up the head every once in a while and face the fact that mining controversies are not yet household issues. We need to remind ourselves that even the person on the street who cares about global issues may not be mulling over the latest news about dead rivers or peoples dispossessed due to a mining operation, whether in Canada or elsewhere.””
