Walton Interviewed by NPR About Papuan Mine Strife

Abi Abrash Walton, assistant to the president for sustainability/social justice, was interviewed by National Public Radio (NPR) for a story on violent miner unrest at the world’s largest gold mine, in Indonesia’s Papua province. The Grasberg mine is owned by Freeport-McMoRan, an American mining conglomerate, which has been accused of environmental and human rights abuses. Workers have struck for higher pay, and violence has escalated.

Walton said in the web article that Freeport-McMoRan has avoided being held to account for human rights abuses because of the lobbying power of its board of directors, which includes Henry Kissinger, former U.S. Secretary of State.

The story, In Indonesia, Anger Against Mining Giant Grows, aired on November 16.
