Urgent Appeal - Increased Human Rights Abuses around TVI Mine
The following is an urgent action from the German NGO FIAN. It should be noted that some of the facts quoted are perhaps arguable (notably that mining as such has not yet started, although exploration, processing and construction have and the estimate of 10,000 small scale miners may be a little high, but are roughly accurate if counting the miners through time) the gist of the urgent action isn't.
The appeal is followed by some background information about a recent visit of community representatives to Canada, the home of the company involved in the proposed mine.
