stop esm banner

Come down to the Cumberland Hotel in London (Great Cumberland Pl, London W1H 7DL) at 8:00am on Tuesday morning where the International Deep Sea Mining Summit will be taking place. Show your solidarity with the Alliance of Solwara Warriors – an alliance of over 20 communities and organisations from within the Bismarck Sea area of Papua New Guinea who are calling for a BAN ON ALL SEABED MINING.

The South Pacific Ocean is currently the World’s Laboratory for the Experiment of Deep Sea Mining. With over over 1.5 million square kilometres of ocean floor already under exploration leasehold the world’s first licence to operate a deep sea mine has been granted in Papua New Guinea to Canadian company Nautilus Minerals who will be at the Deep Sea Mining Summit.

The Deep Sea Mining Summit is being held a week before Nautilus Minerals AGM in Toronto, Canada on 1st June. This a chance to let them know that there is an International alliance who stand with Pacific communities and the Alliance of Solwara Warriors.

The action is supported by the Deep Sea mining Campaign and the London Mining Network
