Moving Mountains is about campaigns challenging the power, priorities and practices of global mining corporations.Transnational mining companies are key agents of corporate globalisation. They are often larger than national economies, and dominate governments, local peoples and their environments, creating local fiefdoms dedicated to the single purpose of extracting resources.In response, affected peoples and non-government organisations are creating new agendas for change, marking out visions and pathways for social and environmental justice. Moving Mountains brings together authors from a wide range of backgrounds discussing experiences, strategies and key issues in the globalisation debate.What is the current situation of mining-affected communities and environments around the world? What is the potential for opposing mining and globalisation? Where are the weak links in the corporate chain, and how can they be broken?Here are accounts from Canada, Australia, Bougainville, the US and the Philippines. David Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World, explores the predatory nature of transnational mining corporations. Indigenous people affected by mining, including Moses Havini of Bougainville and Jacqui Katona of Jabiluka, Australia, describe their first-hand experiences confronting the impacts of corporate mining. Campaigners from non-governmental organisations discuss ways of regulating mining corporations and using financial power to ensure environmental and social protection.There is discussion of corporate public relations and 'green wash', and debate about how campaigns by labour, national liberation, indigenous, human rights and environmental organisations, can force corporations to become more accountable.Moving Mountains is an accessible introduction to globalisation debates, grounded in a critical analysis of mining corporations. It will inform and inspire readers seeking a greater understanding of the issues of globalisation, mining, and the possibilities for change.
