Interview: Tevita Naikasowalu, Commission of Ecological and Social Justice, Fiji

Tevita Naikasowalu is a human rights and indigenous rights defender from Suva, Fiji. His business and human rights work centres around the human and ecological effects of black sand mining, used to extract magnetite—a common iron ore typically used in the manufacture of steel. While black sand mining is a relatively new phenomenon in Fiji, it has a longer history in places like the Philippines, where waste products from mining have polluted the local water ecology and the destruction of shallow water sandbanks has removed natural protections for coastal communities from ocean-borne threats like tsunamis. Tevita organises his business and human rights activism through the Commission of Ecological and Social Justice, run through the Archdiocese of Suva.

Interview: Cressida Kuala, Founder and CEO—Porgera Red Wara (River) Women's Association Incorporated (PRWWA INC), Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.

Cressida Kuala is a human rights activist from Porgera, Papua New Guinea—a remote community dominated by gold mining operations. Canadian mining giant, Barrick, and Chinese miner, Zijin Group, are majority joint owners of the mine which has a chequered human rights record in the region. Barrick employs a significant private security force, which has been implicated in a variety of human rights abuses, from beatings and gang rapes to killings, over the course of the three decades since mining operations commenced in 1990. A frontline human rights activist, originally from Porgera herself, Cressida has been instrumental in efforts to raise awareness about the abuses being perpetrated at Porgera and to educate Porgera locals about their rights—efforts for which she has paid a high personal cost in drawing to herself the same abuses she has sought to challenge in the community.
