More Christians Stand With Local Communities Against Human and Environmental Exploitation

Local representatives from coastal communities of PNG got an opportunity to express their strong opposition to Experimental Seabed Mining at the annual Caritas PNG retreat in early March. The purpose of this exposition was to inform the arm of the Catholic Bishops Council about Experimental Seabed Mining and give an account on what the proposed Experimental mining is really all about, what it entails and how they feel PNG is being used by the mining industry..

The presentation called for the Catholic community to join them in saying BAN to Experimental Seabed Mining in PNG in line with churches responsibility to be stewards of God’s creation.

The presentation was well received. Feedback from participants was overwhelming and supportive as the church got to hear directly from the people who will be impacted should the proposed mining go ahead.

The Catholic Church through Caritas PNG is now looking into ways to assist and raise more awareness on Experimental Seabed Mining in their respective dioceses, parishes and communities. They are also looking into partnering with other churches and community based organisations (CBOs) to mount a strong awareness campaign in support of the people in the area.

Stay tuned as it appears the local community reps have moved the Catholic Church to begin to take an active role on the Experimental Seabed Mining issue throughout PNG and the Pacific.
