It has been a wild week at the UN Ocean Conference in Lisbon. Specifically on deep-sea mining. Pacific Island Nations such as Palau, Fiji and Samoa have all come out in support of stopping deep-sea mining. Chile too, has called for a 15 year moratorium. And now President Macron of France joins the growing chorus rejecting deep-sea mining! Our campaign efforts seem to be coming to fruition. But we still have a long road ahead to stop this disaster from starting!
See my statement on behalf of Women4Oceans delivered just before the announcement from France.
