In my trips to my motherland, women the mothers of the land used to tell me that mining is a very big problem and will not give us anything. Lucy Madoi a strong woman from Kongara in my last trip in November 2009 says, “Mining will bring more outsiders in and more social problems as in the past, We the mothers will live in fear again, Remember our future, Remember our children’s future and our Islands future.
