Natural Justice Attends Meeting of the Working Group on Extractive Industries


Following the Secretariat of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights’ press release on 25 April 2013, Stephanie Booker of Natural Justice attended a meeting of the Working Group on Extractive Industries, Environment and Human Rights Violations in Pretoria, South Africa on 6 May.

In line with the Working Group’s mandate to request, gather, receive and exchange information and materials, participants gathered from a number of civil society organisations around Africa to provide inputs into discussions on impacts of extractive industries in South Africa.  It was also an excellent opportunity to learn more about the mandate of the Working Group, and its work plans in the coming years.
