Broken Bones & Broken Promises: Barrick’s North Mara Mine Fails to Address Ongoing Violence (2015)

17 November 2015

A second human rights field assessment at Barrick Gold’s Tanzania subsidiary, Acacia Mining (formerly African Barrick Gold), calls into question commitments made by the company to stop excessive use of force by mine security and police guarding the mine.

Interviews conducted by MiningWatch Canada and the British NGO Rights and Accountability in Development (RAID) also confirmed that the grievance mechanism at the North Mara Gold Mine Ltd. was used strategically to divert victims from taking legal action.

These victims are now facing broken promises by the company and inadequate remedy to deal with the serious long-term harm they have endured.
