Fiji landowners reject mining

Landowners from the Tikina / Namosi region in Fiji have told their government they do not want any further mineral exploration on their land. In a strongly worded letter to the Land’s Minister the landowners say they want a green future based on sustainable industries. They accuse the government of a lack of transparency, good governance and accountability in pursuing a mining agenda on their land.
