MiningWatch Canada joined JATAM, the Indonesian Mining Advocacy Network, in writing to Vale Indonesia and Vale Canada to renew a request that the company support the restoration of the electricity to homes of the Karonsi’e Dongi people in Bumper, East Luwu, South Sulawesi, Indonesia. The original request had been made two years ago. Karonsi’e Dongi women demonstrated again outside PT Vale’s office on January 27, 2020 to reiterate this demand.
