Description

Transnational mining companies are key agents of corporate globalization. They are often larger than national economies, and dominate governments, local peoples and their environments. In response, affected communities and non-government organizations are creating new agendas for change and justice. In this text, contributors discuss strategies and key issues. Indigenous people affected by mining describe their first-hand experiences of the predatory nature of transnational mining corporations. Campaigners discuss ways of regulating mining and using financial power to ensure environmental and social protection. Other topics include corporate public relations and "green wash", and how campaigns from labour, national liberation, indigenous, human rights and environmental organizations, can force corporate accountability.
