Late Night Live - Mining and Murder in South Africa

An interview with an Australian Radio

The brutal murder of a vocal anti-mining activist has escalated a long-running, sometimes violent dispute between a South Africa coastal community and an Australian mining company.

The murder case is unsolved and raises the question – what is the responsibility of mining companies to communities?

About John GI Clarke

John Clarke hopes to write the wrongs of the world, informed by his experience as a social worker and theologian, to actualise fundamental human rights and satisfy fundamental human needs.  He has lived in the urbanised concentration of Johannesburg, but has worked mainly in the rural reaches of the Wild Coast for the past decade.  From having paid a fortune in toll fees he believes he has earned the right to be critical of Sanral and other extractive institutions, and has not held back while supporting Sustaining the Wild Coast (www.swc.org.za), the Southern African Faith Communities Environment Institute (www.safcei.org.za) and the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (www.outa.co.za), in various ways.
