Interview about Alcan on Canadian radio September 3, 2007Posted by Andreas in activism, Coega, Environment, News, South Africa.
Tristen Taylor, Energy Policy Officer for Earthlife Africa and a fellow blogger,was interviewed about the Alcan aluminium smelter planned for Coega on the Canadian radio station CKUT Montreal the other day. Alcan (recently bought by giant mining transnational Rio Tinto) is a Canadian company, hence the interest, I guess.
I think this is a really great interview. It explains some of the main concerns about the proposed smelter and examines various related issues. Very much worth a listen – in fact this kind of thing should be on public radio in SA.
