With the concerted push by many in academia, entertainment and politics, misleading and outright lying about the mining carried out by Noranda Bauxite mining company, it’s being reported the workers has come to the defense of the company, by staging a protest.
Workers of Noranda Jamaica Bauxite Partners this afternoon protested outside the offices of the Jamaica Environment Trust (JET) in St Andrew over what they say is misinformation in the public domain about mining in the Cockpit Country Protected Area.
The large, peaceful group held placards and handed out flyers.
The protest comes on the heels of a tour by the PNP headed by Dr. Phillips which went sideways when workers tackled him on the party’s position on mining outside the Cockpit Country protected area.
The protesters had placards reading Noranda Bauxite mining has never affected any water supply alongside others that stated the land reclamation project has increased food supply and quality.
