In Madagascar, locals expelled from their land by Rio Tinto/QMM’s mining project in Taolagnaro have been lobbying for fair compensation since 2010. In March 2013, fifteen Fagnomba organization members were arrested and imprisoned for speaking out against the mining activities. Fort-Dauphin residents expelled from their land protested the concessions the company received for its land acquisitions along with the company’s employment policy at its mineral sands operation.
