Peru: Towards a Green Path - Three Stories of Sustainable Development | Conservation International
http://www.conservation.org "When I was a kid, bulldozers smashing through forests were a symbol of progress. For me, development is more about growing trees." Antonio Brack, Peru's former Minister of the Environment, describes three CI projects that prove that green growth is a viable economic strategy. 1. A Tale of Two Towns Two nearby towns in Madre de Dios provide an illustration of different development paths. One town chose to invest in ecotourism, and today is a thriving, green community with healthy families who live and work in the industry. The other is a hotbed of illegal mining, and the resulting wasteland contributes to disease and poverty. Although mining can result in quick riches, the lasting prosperity comes from the green path. Start video with this story: http://youtu.be/J7Clmlbvl04?t=2m7s 2. Certified to Make Money Sustainable harvesting from forests makes environmental and economic sense. Export of organic-certified agricultural products like brazil nuts provides livelihoods to farming families in Madre de Dios without destroying the forest. Similiarly, Forest Stewardship Council certified sustainable wood is in demand for many products from construction to guitars. Although obtaining the certification is expensive and difficult, it is a good investment for the loggers and the forest. Start video with this story: http://youtu.be/J7Clmlbvl04?t=8m8s 3. The Giant Utility Rainforests naturally recycle air, clean water, pollinate crops, and regulate climate. Demand for these services is rising, and providing them in a deforested area increasingly difficult. Carbon offsets can help protect standing forests for the benefit of local communities. The Walt Disney Company has committed to protecting forests in the Alto Mayo region to offset their carbon, in addition to reducing their total emissions.

Embassy Media - Mr Habteab Tsege , Head of Mining Eng. Department @ Mai Nefhi College
Embassy Media conducted an Interview with Mr. Habteab Tsege , Head of Mining Engineering Department, Mai Nefhi College, 15th July 2017 in Vienna Austria. Mr. Habteab Tsege, stated that the inscription of Asmara city onto the UNESCO World Heritage list is a symbol of pride and achievement for the Eritrean people and shoulders the responsibility to maintain its status. He said, Asmara, the capital city of Eritrea, is a unique and distinct social environment of modernist architectural design realized in an African highland setting - known for its well-preserved buildings of modernist architectural designs, Asmara is the first World Heritage Site to be recognised in Eritrea. Mr Habteab further explain, Africa’s last, lost, great civilization, The Land of Punt, has been proven to be located in Eritrea. Using laboratory analysis of Baboon mummies from Punt found in ancient burials in Egypt scientists have conclusively established that the nearest relatives to the Punt baboons are found in Eritrea on the Red Sea. The closest relatives were found in the hills behind the modern port city of Massawa which lies at the mouth of Zula Bay behind which can be found the ruins of the ancient city empire of Adulis. Mr. Habteab Tsege called on participants to work for preserving the strong values of the People of Eritrea. He concluded that “Punt is a sort of circumscribed region that includes and all of Eritrea.

Excellent Development - Walking on water (full video) - part 1
Brought to you by www.excellent.org.uk. Excellent explains how its approach to creating development through conservation is benefiting communities in Kenya. In addition to exploring each individual element of the charity's holistic approach to soil and water conservation, these films also offer a valuable insight into how Sand Dams, a key element of Excellent's approach, represent an effective and necessary small-scale approach to strengthening communities' long-term sustainability. Whilst being critical to improving water supplies, food production, health and incomes for communities in semi-arid Kenya, Sand Dams are also a grassroots answer to fighting climate change, a benefit recently reinforced by the release of the government commissioned Stern Report. The Stern Report has renewed attention on the impacts of climate change in Africa highlighting their uneven distribution, with the poorest countries being most affected. Simon Maddrell, Excellent's co-founder comments, "The development challenges in semi-arid Africa are completely different to the industrial nations. In semi-arid Africa it is conservation that can actually create sustainable development. Water and soil conservation provides farmers with the environment to create livelihoods by creating oases in semi-arid lands that can support water and food security. Arguably, the communities we are working with are doing far more to reverse the impacts of climate change than any of us in the West. They deserve our support, not just because they struggle to sustain their lives, but as global citizens concerned with the future of our planet."

Maisha A New Life Outside the Mines
What happens when hundreds of children from the DRC drop their tools and abandon the mines for a new life? They go to school, start businesses and stop dying at a young age. A rare and timely look at the dangers of DR Congo's small-scale mining sector that powers our digital age, this film takes the viewer to a place few have ventured before: inside the copper and cobalt mines in Kolwezi, southern DRC. This film follows a grass-roots initiative that has generated much conversation -- from the streets of Kolwezi to the halls of the United Nations HQ in New York -- on how the Congolese can break the cycle of poverty, abuse and exploitation inflicted on it by multinational mining companies to build a sustainable development model that's powered by the country's most potent resource: its people. This Good Shepherd project was featured prominently in a January, 2016 Amnesty International report on the international cobalt trade, and the dangers to children: https://goo.gl/8oZtKw Film Credits: Written and Filmed by Luca Paradiso, Bernhard Warner Giampaolo Bisegna Narrated by Bernhard Warner Edited by Giampaolo Bisegna Luca Paradiso Executive Producer Cristina Duranti for the Good Shepherd International Foundation http://www.maishafilm.com

Mindanao Grassroots Human Rights Conference
We, the seventy-six (76) participants from the different provinces of Mindanao representing the fifty-two (52) grassroots organizations of Lumad, Bangsamoro and Migrant Settlers, actively advocating and working for the advancement and protection of human rights convened during the Mindanao Grassroots Human Rights Conference held at Dapit Alim, Simbuco, Kolambugan, Lanao del Norte on September 3-5, 2015. We strongly express, The current global economic and political framework is only at the best interest of the few; The common people continuously experience massive and intense curtailment and violations of their human rights. The absence of sustainable and decent work; unjust and unfair system of labor like contractualization and informalization; absence of support services from the government like genuine agrarian reform and support to family-based and small scale farmers and fisherfolks; lack of support and protection to OFWs; lack of budget and insufficient implementation of program for education and other basic social services; and imposition of profit-driven development to communities such as mining, logging, agri-business plantation and construction of coal-fired power plants have resulted to massive land grabbing of ancestral and agricultural lands of the people and the devastation of the environment; The poverty induced by inhumane development dictated by a system that accumulates excessive profit, monopolizes and privatizes natural resources have resulted to immense gap and unequal development of the society and dehumanize the common people; The on-going armed conflict and militarization in Mindanao extremely violates the rights of the people to life and to live peacefully. This also causes massive displacement of hundreds of thousands of people from their land, work and home. Human rights defenders and advocates were persecuted while others experience harassment because of ‘red tagging’ – they are associated to rebel groups and other elements who alleged to be enemies of the state and corporations. In general, the Lumads, Bangsamoro and Migrant Settlers in Mindanao are in great jeopardy as they themselves are victims of impunity in defending human rights. We believe that in our collective efforts, we can strengthen the peoples’ movements to advance human rights as fundamental in attaining genuine peace and sustainable development in Mindanao and in the country in general; We will promote mechanisms that would always protect the victorious struggle of the people and the community for peace, development and human right; We are in solidarity with all the movements in the local, national and international in order to fortify the struggle for human rights; We are unified in strengthening our movement as response to the challenges and threats to the democratic realization of rights of the people and of the environment; We call and demand for: · Stop militarization in the communities! · Stop the divide and rule tactics employed to the people in the communities! · Stop mining, logging, agri-business plantations and construction of coal-fired power plants and other projects that destroy the environment and community! · End harassments of the farmers and tenants and genuinely implement agrarian and fisheries reforms! · Strict implementation of minimum wage, social benefits and end contractualization practices in labor! · Sufficient program that protect OFWs and all the workers! · End privatization of basic social services (health, education, water, transportation, irrigation, electricity, housing, etc.)! · Justice to the victims of extra-judicial killings and destructive projects done by the state and non-state elements! · Fast track the process of ancestral domain claims! · Efficient programs and services for the victim-survivors of calamities and armed conflicts! · Genuine participation of the people and the community in the peace processes in order to advances its inclusivity! · Full inclusion of Indigenous Peoples Rights Act (IPRA) in the Bangsamoro Basic Law! · Promote peaceful means in resolving armed conflicts in Mindanao! · Strictly implement the existing mechanisms that fully realize human rights!

FSRN Gold Mining in Haiti Exposes Corruption
As delegates and activists from around the world gather this week in Brazil for the RIO+20 conference on sustainable development, they'll be discussing a broad range of issues, including food security, urban growth, jobs and disaster response. Advocates are also drawing attention to the corporate influence at the UN-backed conference and calling for an alternative to extractive industries, such as mining. According to a draft text of the RIO+20 resolution obtained and published by the Guardian today, delegates will include mining as a way to alleviate poverty and help countries to meet development goals. The text also calls for strong government oversight of mining. Mining plays a big role in many developing countries, including Haiti. As the country continues to recover from the devastating earthquake of 2010 and pervasive government corruption, foreign companies are rushing in to mine for gold. According to a ten-month investigation by local reporters and students with Haiti Grassroots Watch, one third of the land in northern Haiti is under exploration, research or extraction by foreign companies and some residents are worried about environmental destruction. One of those residents is Elie Florestan from Grand Bois. "I think a mine might cause lots of problems for us. They say the mine would use our river. They say our water might become polluted. And that many families will be displaced." Two of the foreign companies most aggressively pushing for mining are Eurasian Minerals, based in Canada, and Newmont, based in the US. According to Haiti Grassroots Watch, two Haitian ministers recently signed a "Memorandum of Understanding" with Newmont and Eurasian that says the companies can begin drilling at one of their sites, a violation of Haitian law, which states no drilling can occur without a mining convention. The mining companies have promised to provide much-needed jobs in the area and some residents expressed support for the projects. Anthony Silvestre, a resident of Morne Bossa said some of the land in his area was rich with the mineral. "We feel very strongly about something: we like foreigners a lot. When foreigners come and work with us we're proud and it's beautiful. If they make a mine at Morne Bossa it would be as if God himself came down from heaven." But communities in nearby Dominican Republic are already confronting the costs of mining. The Canadian companies Barrick and Goldcorp are teaming up to develop an open pit mine. Barrick has already been forced to clean up a river polluted with sulphuric acid from a previous government-backed project in the area. Some residents described being displaced from their land for the new mine. "They moved us to this neighbohood, with nothing, no jobs no land. We're farmers! But we have nowhere to plant except the yard." In Haiti, residents and community journalists are organizing to demand more transparency in the process. But the pace is picking up. One of the mining firms, Eurasian Minerals, has collected 44,000 samples and Newmont is considering at least five mine sites. The government's role has also been called into question. A former Minister of the Economy and Finances is now a paid consultant for Newmont and residents have struggled to get information about the projects. Arnolt Jean is a farmer in Lakwev. He calls the government irresponsible. "Yes, the country is poor. But what's underground could make us rich. If the government did what it was supposed to do, and exploit the minerals that are underground, the country would not be poor, but since what's underground stays underground, rich people figure out how to exploit the minerals, so they can become richer. Those who live on top of the ground stay poor. Those who exploit what's underground get even richer." Despite millions of dollars of aid money pouring into Haiti, the government still lacks resources to adequately monitor mining or oversee future projects.

Arundhati Roy: Foundations & NGOs Pacify Grassroots Movements
http://www.democracynow.org - As voting begins in India in the largest elections the world has ever seen, we spend the hour with Indian novelist and essayist Arundhati Roy. Nearly 815 million Indians are eligible to vote and results will be issued in May. One of India's most famous authors — and one of its fiercest critics — Roy is out with a new book, "Capitalism: A Ghost Story," which dives into India's transforming political landscape and makes the case that globalized capitalism has intensified the wealth divide, racism, and environmental degradation. "This new election is going to be [about] who the corporates choose," Roy says, "[about] who is not going to blink about deploying the Indian army against the poorest people in this country, and pushing them out to give over those lands, those rivers, those mountains, to the major mining corporations." Watch and share the full interview uninterrupted: http://www.democracynow.org/2014/4/9/is_india_on_a_totalitarian_path Roy won the Booker Prize in 1997 for her novel, "The God of Small Things."

About Grassroot Nigeria Content Development Awareness Summit. After 50 years since the exploitation of hydrocarbon started in Nigeria, the percentage of local content in the oil & gas industry is only 5-15%. Analysing the average amount spent annually in the petroleum industry, which averages about US $8Billion, only about 5% is retained in Nigeria. Signed into Law on April 22, 2010 by President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry Content Development Act is designed not only to increase indigenous participation in the Nigerian oil and gas industry but also act as a spring board to encourage technology transfer as well as drive government's socio-economic development agenda. The gains of this law could be summarized as follows: 1. Economic growth 2. More employment of locals 3. Value creation in the country 4. Local Participation/ Investment 5. Induced expenditure in the local economy 6. Enhanced human capacity 7. Technology transfer Three years after passage, a comprehensive reappraisal of impact show very low success rate the legislation had increased the Nigerian content in the area of manufacturing of equipment used in the industry to about 7%. But the average performance in the implementation of the Act is about 30%. This FREE summit which is being organised by TOTAL, Shell, AGIP, Port Harcourt Chamber of Commerce, Industry Mines & Agriculture (PHACCIMA), CNS Marine Nigeria Limited, Forum of South South Chamber of Commerce, Industry Mines & Agriculture (FOSSCCIMA), and Price Water House Coopers International (PWC), is geared towards increasing awareness and impacting knowledge of this act to grassroot business people who cannot the cost of the high profile Nigeria Content Development conferences organised in the past. In our opinion, a better understanding of the act will increase participation, which will also improve the average performance in the implementation of the NCD act.

Stephanie Roth: 2005 Goldman Prize winner, Romania
A former editor at the London-based magazine, The Ecologist, Stephanie Roth has been the driving force behind an international campaign to stop construction of Europe's largest open cast gold mine, slated to be built in Romania. Roth joined the anti-mining campaign after she was involved in a successful grassroots movement to stop development of a so-called "Dracula Theme Park" in Transylvania, a project that would have destroyed an ancient oak forest reserve next to a medieval citadel. The Goldman Environmental Prize is the world's largest prize for grassroots environmentalists. Each of the winners, chosen from the planet's six inhabited continental regions, demonstrate exceptional courage and commitment, often working at great risk to protect our environment.

Keynote Speech - Lindsay Appleby, Her Majesty's Ambassador - Designate to Colombia The UK will launch its initial strategy on implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights in September 2012 and this conference will provide an opportunity to discuss and debate this strategy, to engage with the UK government on how it can best fulfil its commitment to 'Protect, Respect and Remedy', and with corporations on their ideas for the implementation of responsible mining practices and due diligence requirements. Issues of natural resource governance are invariably at the centre of development and human rights debates as the extractive sector represents a growing part of Latin American economies. In Colombia, the government has identified the mining and energy sector as a key component of its current National Development Plan and one of the 'backbones of the Colombian economy'. What changes can be made to take into account the voices of local indigenous, afro-Colombian and campesino communities? What are the challenges for companies investing in countries with poor human rights records and how are they meeting them? How is human rights due diligence seen from a Southern perspective? What difference could the UN Guiding Principles make and what concrete actions should governments be taking to improve the mining industry's environmental and social performance? Tackling these questions will be experts from a range of disciplines and key public bodies, including scholars, practitioners, and policy-makers, as well as representatives from the legal sector and mining industry. We are pleased to welcome indigenous and campesino community leaders from Colombia, including Embera and Awá indigenous peoples, to share the impact mining is having on their communities.

Glenn Mullan | PDAC President discusses 2018 PDAC Convention & How it Benefits the Mining Investor
In a sector such as mining where the investor can either multiple or deplete his or her wealth quickly, knowledge and its wise application is absolutely crucial. The investor’s knowledge is often the determining factor regarding whether the investor is successful or not. One of the best ways to grow in knowledge, to learn about new investing opportunities and to stay on top of current trends is by attending the annual PDAC Convention in Toronto. The PDAC Convention is the world’s largest and premier mining conference attended by people from all over the world. In 2017, the PDAC Convention had over 24,000 attendees from 130 different countries. In this episode, Glenn Mullan, President of the Prospectors & Developers of Canada (PDAC) shares about the upcoming PDAC Convention. Glenn Mullan is the 36th President of the Prospectors & Developers of Canada (PDAC). Learn more and Register at: http://www.pdac.ca/convention Over his +40-year career, Glenn has followed a traditional exploration and prospecting path. He began with contract geophysical surveys, where he caught the bug for being in the North and working in remote locations, then began prospecting and staking mining claims independently while completing his B.Sc. in Geology and Earth Sciences at Concordia University. He later conducted contract exploration geological services, mostly located in Northern Ontario and Québec. Glenn would go on to broker numerous prospector/vendor transactions with arms-length public companies, and form a public company in 1999 that evolved into Ni-Cu-PGE producer that currently employs more than 300 people in Northern Québec. Glenn has a broad spectrum of industry-related experience—across Canada and Africa—including early-stage acquisitions and exploration through PEA, BFS, permitting and mine development-stages, as well as CSR initiatives, financing and corporate development. That said, he much prefers early-stage grassroots exploration in remote locations and near his home base in Val-D’Or, Québec. Currently, Glenn serves as President and CEO of Golden Valley Mines Ltd, where his main area of interest continues to be grassroots early-stage exploration, primarily for base and precious metals in Canada and abroad. Glenn has been a PDAC member for over 40 years, serving on the Executive Committee, Awards Committee, CSR Committee and the Governance & Nominating Committee.

8 Surprising Reasons To Use Hydrogen Peroxide in Your Garden
Hydrogen peroxide ranks up there with baking soda and vinegar as one of the best multi-purpose products to have stocked in your cupboards. Typically used to sanitize injuries, hydrogen peroxide can also be used somewhere quite unexpected: the garden. While not strictly an organic solution, hydrogen peroxide is safe for use in any type of garden including vegetables, plus it's easy on the budget. Here Are 8 benefits of using Hydrogen peroxide in your garden 1.Peroxide help seeds grow faster You can speed up the growth of seeds by soaking them in a weak solution of water and peroxide for a few minutes before rinsing and planting. 2.Peroxide works as a rooting agent The key to a strong, healthy plant is a good base, the roots. Give your roots a boost by dosing them with a little bit of peroxide. This can also help revive limp leaves. Spray a peroxide/water solution into the soil around the plant. 3.Peroxide keeps bugs away Skip expensive chemicals at the store and spritz your plants with 1% hydrogen peroxide to keep bugs at bay. 4.Peroxide can prevent infections on cut plants and trees Treat infections on plant leaves or roots with a spray of water and peroxide to disinfect the area and prevent the disease from spreading. You'll want to douse the area with a lot of the water/peroxide solution for the best results. 5.Peroxide helps aerate the soil Plants of all kinds need three basic things to survive: food, water and air. If your soil is too compact that means the roots can't get enough circulation to properly grow. Plus, soil that's too dense is a breeding ground for disease. Apply 2 parts water to 1-part peroxide to the roots of your plant to help aerate the soil around it. 6.Treat your water with hydrogen peroxide Make the water you feed your plants a little healthier, by adding a bit of peroxide with the water in your watering can before applying to your plants and lawn. The peroxide removes chemicals and pesticides from tap water, making it healthier for your plants. 7.Peroxide helps heal sick plants In particular, a peroxide is a great option for treating root rot. If your soil is too compact, root rot can develop. Use 3% hydrogen peroxide mixed with water (one-part peroxide to two parts water) and pour it over the infected roots of your plant. And 8.Use peroxide to disinfect garden tools Stop the spread of disease in your plants and garden by sanitizing your tools. This is especially true after finding and treating a fungus. Jut soak your tools in 1 gallon of water and 2 cups of peroxide. Have you ever used hydrogen peroxide in your garden? let us know in the comments below!

SDF Has Killed Democracy in Sikkim |Bhaichung Bhutia|Hamro Sikkim|Vice President|
The youngest party in the history of Sikkim politics, Hamro Sikkim, which has recently stirred up the politics in the state, organized a public meeting in Rongli under the Chujachen constituency. The meeting saw the presence of top party leaders, Vice Presidents, Bhaichung Bhutia, RB Subba, KN Upreti, Biraj Adhikari and party representatives from around the state along with local public. Addressing the public, Bhaichung accused the ruling government to have been in power only in the assistance of lies and the inability of the government to put forward the demands of the state in the centre. He blamed the SDF to have killed democracy reiterating his previous allegation of introducing party politics in the Panchayat Elections. SDF has claimed to have worked at the grass root level but NITI Aayog having termed East District as a backward district is a dark spot on Sikkim. Veteran politician RB Subba assured the public of the agenda of Hamro Sikkim to be holistic development of the state and eliminate corruption from the roots. He termed the Chief Minister to be partial towards certain sections and some parts of the society being left out in equal rights. Other party leaders also voiced their opinion in the meeting where the constituency level party office was also inaugurated.

Maria Gunnoe: 2009 Goldman Prize winner, USA
In the heart of Appalachia, where the coal industry wields enormous power over government and public opinion, lifelong resident Maria Gunnoe fights against environmentally-devastating mountaintop removal mining and valley fill operations. Her advocacy has led to the closure of mines in the region and stricter regulations for the industry. The Goldman Environmental Prize is the world's largest award for grassroots environmentalists. Awarded annually since 1990, the Prize is given to environmental heroes from the six continental regions of Africa, Asia, Islands & Island Nations, Europe, North America and South & Central America.

Mining in Colombia and Latin America: Panel 3: Anne Lindsay
12-11-12 Human Rights Consortium http://www.sas.ac.uk/ http://events.sas.ac.uk/isa/events/view/12859/Mining+in+Colombia+and+Latin+America%3A+will+the+UN+Guiding+Principles+on+Business+and+Human+Rights+improve+accountability%3F Mining in Colombia and Latin America: will the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights improve accountability? Panel 3: UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights: How should the Respect, Protect and Remedy framework be implemented? The UK strategy on the implementation of the UN Guiding Principles will be presented for discussion, identifying gaps or weaknesses and looking at their real potential to ignite change. The panel will explore how corporations will implement the UN Guiding principles, their impact on corporate risk management processes and ultimately whether they will result in changes in practices. Southern Communities'perspective on human rights due diligence will be taken into account to determine what needs to be changed and how the UN Guiding Principles can be used to address these issues. Finally, could the implementation of UN Guiding principles prevent, or not, human rights violations and environmental damage? Anne Lindsay, Lead Analyst Private Sector, CAFOD The UK will launch its initial strategy on implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights in September 2012 and this conference will provide an opportunity to discuss and debate this strategy, to engage with the UK government on how it can best fulfil its commitment to 'Protect, Respect and Remedy', and with corporations on their ideas for the implementation of responsible mining practices and due diligence requirements. Issues of natural resource governance are invariably at the centre of development and human rights debates as the extractive sector represents a growing part of Latin American economies. In Colombia, the government has identified the mining and energy sector as a key component of its current National Development Plan and one of the 'backbones of the Colombian economy'. What changes can be made to take into account the voices of local indigenous, afro-Colombian and campesino communities? What are the challenges for companies investing in countries with poor human rights records and how are they meeting them? How is human rights due diligence seen from a Southern perspective? What difference could the UN Guiding Principles make and what concrete actions should governments be taking to improve the mining industry's environmental and social performance? Tackling these questions will be experts from a range of disciplines and key public bodies, including scholars, practitioners, and policy-makers, as well as representatives from the legal sector and mining industry. We are pleased to welcome indigenous and campesino community leaders from Colombia, including Embera and Awá indigenous peoples, to share the impact mining is having on their communities.

EIA: Reflections from Communities in Myanmar (Myanmar VO)
An English voice-over version of this video is available here: https://youtu.be/-Id9APi14Ic Environmental Impact Assessments, or EIAs can be a crucial tool for communities who face harmful development projects. ERI uses this video in grassroots trainings to show how communities can use the public consultations during an EIA process to make their voices heard. The video focuses on the story of the Heinda tin mine in Myanmar. Since 2008, pollution from the Heinda mine has contaminated water supplies in nearby villages, with villagers reporting health problems and damage to their farmlands. The company operating the Heinda mine, Myanmar Pongpipat Company Ltd (MPC), was ordered to conduct an EIA. But as villagers in the affected communities saw that EIA laws were not being followed, they refused to participate in public consultations for the company, preventing the EIA from moving forward. Communities across the Mekong and elsewhere can look to the Heinda case to see one method of influencing the course of development projects in their area. This video is for other civil society groups or communities who are working to support public participation in EIA processes. “We observed that the company used English language and technical environmental engineering terms that could not be understood by the community. When they did this, people in the community stood up and complained that they cannot accept it like this.” - Aye Mon Thu, Dawei Probono Lawyers Network “Public participation is central to the meaning of an EIA. If there is no public participation, the whole process of an EIA is meaningless.” - Than Than Aye, ERI Myanmar Legal Coordinator “I want to see that there are no losses or impacts for both villagers and company. If the villagers are impacted, the company must take responsibility for that.” - Daw Khin San, Myaung Pyo Villager Help us caption & translate this video! https://amara.org/v/iFPE/ Help us caption & translate this video! https://amara.org/v/iQbn/

Thunderstruck copper assets 'ready to go now' with JV partner
February 6, 2018 -- “In the last few months we have got our permitting in place, compensation agreements with the chiefs of every [Fiji] village, license renewals…we are ready to go now with joint venture partners.”  — states Bryce Bradley CEO, President and Co-founding Director of Thunderstruck Resources Ltd. (TSXV: AWE) in an interview with InvestorIntel’s Jeff Wareham. Jeff Wareham: Of all the places that I talk to about mining, Fiji is one of the most interesting ones. How is it as a jurisdiction to work in? Bryce Bradley: Surprisingly a lot of people did not know about Fiji as a mining jurisdiction, but it has been mining for over 75 years. There is a gold mine to the north of us on the main island. There is another one, Lion One Metals, which is going into development right now. It has its development permit. It is a gold development play. There is a big copper porphyry owned by Newcrest right to the right of us at 20 kilometers. It is very mining friendly right from grassroots right through to production. Jeff Wareham: When should investors be looking for more news? Bryce Bradley: We will be getting a lot of news. We are going to be putting out a press release next week on results from our exploration program on our gold asset, Liwa Creek, that will come out next week. The following week we will be putting out results on Rama Creek, our copper porphyry. In the meantime, we are actually getting, it cannot be called a resource estimate, but it is a back-of-the envelope grade and tonnage estimate on our zinc-copper assets for potential joint venture partners.

The Cultural Foundations of Chinese Communism - Lecture by Elizabeth Perry
April 15, 2013 How do we explain the surprising trajectory of the Chinese Communist revolution? Why has it taken such a different route from its Russian prototype? An answer, Elizabeth Perry suggests, lies in the Chinese Communists' creative deployment of cultural resources -- during their revolutionary rise to power and afterward. Skillful "cultural positioning" and "cultural patronage" on the part of Mao Zedong, his comrades, and successors helped to construct a polity in which a foreign political system came to be accepted as familiarly "Chinese." Illustrated by numerous colorful images, Perry's talk traces this process through a case study of the Anyuan coal mine, where Mao and other early Communist leaders mobilized an influential labor movement at the beginning of their revolution. Once known as "China's Little Moscow," Anyuan came over time to serve as a touchstone of "political correctness" that symbolized a distinctively Chinese revolutionary tradition. Perry explores the contested meanings of that tradition as contemporary Chinese debate their revolutionary past in search of a new political future. Elizabeth J. Perry is the Henry Rosovsky Professor of Government and Director of the Harvard-Yenching Institute. She is a comparativist with special expertise in the politics of China. A fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the recipient of a Guggenheim fellowship, she sits on the editorial boards of nearly a dozen major scholarly journals, holds honorary professorships at six Chinese universities, and has served as the President of the Association for Asian Studies. Professor Perry's research focuses on popular protest and grassroots politics in modern and contemporary China. Her books include Rebels and Revolutionaries in North China, 1845-1945 (1980); Chinese Perspectives on the Nien Rebellion (1981); Popular Protest and Political Culture in Modern China (1992); Proletarian Power: Shanghai in the Cultural Revolution (1997); Silence and Voice in the Study of Contentious Politics (2001); Mao's Invisible Hand: The Political Foundations of Adaptive Governance in China (2011); and Anyuan: Mining China's Revolutionary Tradition (2012). Her book, Shanghai on Strike: the Politics of Chinese Labor (1993), won the John King Fairbank prize from the American Historical Association. Her article, "Chinese Conceptions of Rights" (2008), won the Heinz Eulau award from the American Political Science Association.

Senator David Tomassoni invites committee to tour a frac sand mine
While the Minnesota House Mining and Outdoor Recreation Policy Committee will be hearing only from frac sand industry and agency representatives next week, and none of the grassroots citizen groups concerned with mining, Chisholm state senator is organizing a field trip for the Environment, Economic Development and Agriculture Budget Division Committee to a Uniminn silica sand mine "near Mankato" (there are two in Le Sueur County, one close to Kasota and another at Ottawa). Bluestem hopes that this excursion will be open to the press (and perhaps the public) in accordance to Minnesota's open meeting law. We also hope that the press does due diligence on the history of the mine, including the full history of the lawsuit which lead to the creation of the nearby Kasota Prairie preserve, as well as examining how the Uniminn mines on the middle Minnesota might be working in an area that's geologically different from Southeastern Minnesota--as well as using some critical thinking about whether one mine is representative of the entire industry.

The online map developed in this project uses data from the EPA 2007 Abandon Uranium Mines and the Navajo Nation: Atlas with Geospatial Data to give citizens access to basic information on unregulated water sources and abandon urnanium mine features. The map also provides citizens with the basic tools to visulize the spatial elements of potential environmental hazards. Environmental Justice is a relatively new field for environmental advocacy. One the many attributes that is illustrative of environmental injustice is proximity to pollution. Developments in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and the gathering of spatial data have furthered the implications of environmental justice. The GIS technical expertise is not always available to grassroots organizations and thus the spatial nexus is sometimes missing in the struggle for justice. This project was designed to assist the Navajo grassroots organization The Forgotten People in both policy development and participatory mapping. website: http://www.wwu.edu/huxley/spatial/fppm/
