South Africa: Authorities must protect coastal community’s right to consent to future mining on their land

Amnesty International strongly condemns the failure of the Minister of Mineral Resources, Gwede Mantashe, to allow an effective voice to the Indigenous Amadiba community at a meeting held on the 16 January 2019. The meeting was part of ongoing consultations that the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) initiated regarding proposed mining in the area.
