Human rights activists are traveling to South Africa to confront the world’s biggest mining conference taking place in Cape Town, and known as “Mining Indaba”
The conference brings together investors from around the world to discuss mining interests in Africa. In attendance are mining companies and their stakeholders, including investors, governments and politicians, among others.
Sources told TODAY NEWS AFRICA in Washington DC that while investors in shinning suits and shoes would be hosting their main Mining Indaba in Cape Town, civil society organizations will be holding their own Alternative Mining Indaba in the city.
The aim is to bring to the fore stories of injustice and socio-economic rights violations in mining communities from across the continent, from the DRC to Mozambique and South Africa.
TODAY NEWS AFRICA would be bringing you updates when everything starts on Monday.
