Thank you very much for joining my little awareness campaign against mercury pollution.

By the way, BCL never polluted the environment with mercury or other toxic chemicals.

I think it is very important that the people on the ground learn to take care of their environment and their health.

They are already more than enough exposed to multiple risks as there are betelnut (mouth cancer), homebrew (loss of control) and others.

Bougainville could be a true paradise if we could help them to live more respectful towards”imported” risks. It’s already tragic enough that lots of them suffer from acquired diabetes from wrong nutrition.

When I point out that alluvial mining has its risks, it is not because of the loss of gold for BCL, believe me. For us shareholders the losses due to fraudulent activities on the stock markets are more important and much more annoying!

I also hope that Bougainvilleans will find a way to get along well amongst each others – without greed and jealousy!

Perhaps I’m a stupid dreamer, but here in Europe, France and Germany were able to reconcile successfully – we celebrated today 50 years of Franco-German Friendship after centuries of wars.
