POST COURIER | “We are optimistic about the success of our campaign to Ban the Frieda Mine given that representatives of the United Nations have raised their concerns with the Government of Papua New Guinea.”
EMTV | Project Sepik, a community based organization conducting awareness on the proposed Frieda mine in East and West Sepik, says the National Government is yet to respond to 10 UN Special rapporteurs of concerns on the mine.
Save the Sepik campaign needs your support to get the message out to protect the mighty Sepik River and for a ban on the Frieda River mine.
Ten UN Special Rapporteurs, along with the UN Working Group on Human Rights and Transnational Corporations, have written to the PNG Government to raise their concerns about the proposed Frieda River mine and the risk of failure of its proposed tailings dam.
“We need to bring this message out to the world: That, this is not only Papua New Guinea’s river and rainforests, but Papua New Guineans are custodians of something that must belong to the world.”
