Being concerned about the possible consequences of lack of environmental
vigilance in mining operations such as Ok Tedi in Papua New Guinea I was
sorry to see the news about the cyanide spill in Guyana, but pleased that
someone had taken the trouble to post further information on it to
anthro-l. I think it is appropriate that anthropologists concern
themselves with environmental degradation of native lands and with the kinds
of colonial and neocolonial relationships which may be involved.
