“We dig our own land and we are herded by the company, Barrick, who despises us”
This film originally appeared on French Television and offers an inside look on the ground at Barrick’s Porgera Mine in Papua New Guinea. Now, the documentary short is available with English subtitles.
This context is important given Barrick’s recent announcement that it intends to sell its stake in Porgera. Landowners are determined to not let any sale happen before outstanding issues are resolved with the company, and have issued an ultimatum to the PNG government threatening to shut down the mine if their concerns are not met.
