Read the full post here Author: Earth Rights International Earth Rights International (ERI) and Canada’s Barrick Gold Corporation, the world’s largest gold mining company, released the following statement today: “Barrick Gold Corporation and Earth Rights International (ERI) have negotiated a settlement of claims by 14 individuals from Papua New Guinea (“PNG”), represented by ERI, in relation to a variety of alleged acts of violence concerning the Porgera Mine in PNG.
Eleven of these individuals are women with claims alleging acts of sexual violence, including rape.
When I interview informants, they often take the opportunity to ask me personal questions about sexuality, romance, and racial difference.
After an hour-long interview with two twenty-year-old men, one of them politely inquired if I would ever consider marrying a black man.
These fortunate claimants were the clients of lawyers with US-based Earth Rights International, who was prepared to file legal cases on their behalf.
“This case proves once again that victims of criminal acts at the hands of employees of companies such as Barrick Gold absolutely require truly independent legal counsel to ensure their legal and human rights are protected,” says Catherine Coumans of Mining Watch Canada.
(Needless to say, women who've actually lived overseas or spent time in expat enclaves often have a very different perspective on white men's fidelity and sobriety.) I've lost track of the number of times I've heard young women, and even a few older married ones, declare with exasperation that they're finished with PNG men and want to find a white husband.Another companion even snuck a look at my phone while I was sleeping, and started sending flirtatious text messages to one of my contacts, whom she knew to be white, male, and single.(I found out about this much later, when he informed me, amused, of the messages he had been receiving late at night.) These girls are hardly “gold diggers” or loose women; most are churchgoing “good girls” with dreams of upward mobility and international travel that are tragically inaccessible to most Papua New Guineans. I find it hard to explain that dating works differently where I'm from, and that few American men in their twenties and thirties would be interested in, or even aware of, the possibility of striking up a long distance relationship with a Papua New Guinean girl.Read the full post here Author: Karen Mc Veigh, Guardian (UK) A Canada-based gold mining company is paying compensation to a group of tribal women and girls who allege they were assaulted and raped by police and security guards at the company’s mine in Papua New Guinea.
The 11 women…are among 137 local Enga women and girls who had previously been compensated by Barrick Gold Corporation…Most of the 137 women accepted the company’s offer of a compensation package under a “remedy framework” set up by Barrick as an alternative to the local judicial system... [Earth Rights International (ERI)], who have worked with the community in Porgera since 2012, have been negotiating a settlement with Barrick over the past two weeks…The terms mean that ERI will not file litigation on behalf of the 14 clients, it said.Many ask me about immigration opportunities, fantasizing out loud about, for example, going to pick fruit in Australia and nabbing a man at the same time, or going on a tourist visa to America and “just staying forever”.
