Miners Next Door: New Haiti Briefing Out Now! 

The Haiti Support Group’s Haiti Briefing no. 77 is out now. Entitled “The Miners Next Door”, this edition examines the current state of mining in Haiti, the role of global mining corporations in taking advantage of local mining codes and the interest of foreign investors in exploiting Haiti’s natural resources. We also speak to local groups who have opposed the close circles within the Haitian mining industry and who tell us of the struggles and threats they are currently facing.

People who live in these areas are often unaware of the explorations taking place or indeed the impact that such operations could have on their lives and natural resources.
