Akali Tange Association Rejoinder to Barrick Gold
"It is becoming a systematic problem for Barrick Gold Corp for almost two decades in denying allegations of human and environment rights abuses. The reports as stated in the Dirty Profit 6 are all true. Other similar reports of human and environment abuses by Barrick do confirm the Dirty Profit 6 Report.
To our understanding and proof of evidences that we have on hand, we strongly dispute Barrick’s response to the Dirty Profit 6 Report as biased and total misleading. In addition to other Barrick mining operations that are included in the report, Barrick’s Porgera Gold Mine in the highlands of Papua New Guinea is really a hell on Earth where systematic rapes and or gang rapes, extra-judicial killings, tortures, beatings and force evictions by its security officers and its specially hired PNG Police Mobil Squads, as well as discharging of toxic chemicals directly into the riverine system are common."
