Chairman of the Association of Journalists on Mining and Extractives, Mr. Theophilus Gbenda, has called on the Government of Sierra Leone to do more to improve the living conditions of people in mining communities across the country to avert the looming threats of violent conflicts.
Gbenda made this appeal at the launching of the second edition of the newsletter, Mining Watch, at the Atlantic Hall of the National Stadium in Freetown on Wednesday 13 October 2010. Mining Watch is published by the Association of Journalists on Mining and Extractives (AJME) in collaboration with the Network Movement for Justice and Development (NMJD). AJME is the media wing of the Campaign for Just Mining, an advocacy platform of civil society organizations working around mining and the environment to ensure responsible and responsive mining activities throughout Sierra Leone.
