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.
