Sign the petition to prohibit mining in the Lower Zambezi National Park

“The Lower Zambezi National Park was due to be declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO as a result of the Zambian Government’s agreement not to allow mining there. However, Zambia has since allowed an environmental impact statement to be tendered by the Austrailian company, Zambezi Resources for a massive open-pit mining operation in the park, suggesting a change of mind on the part of the Patriotic Front Government. However, ZEMA have now refused the application but Zambezi Resources have appealed to the Minister of Lands, Natural Resources and Environmental Protection to overturn the ZEMA decision. Should he do so the campaign will move to inform the Company investors, as well as target the Mugabe/Sata/UNTWO pact.”

The Zambia Community Based Natural Resource Management Forum supports the initiative to prohibit mining in the Lower Zambezi National Park. Please sign the petition to support this cause at the link below:
