London Demo Against Asia Energy/GCM and Open-Pit Mining - 6/Dec/10 10:30am

Dear Friends,

As you probably already know that a British company, GCM Resources (formerly known as Asia Energy) is aggressively trying to secure a deal with Bangladesh Government to capture the biggest coal reserve of Bangladesh in Phulbari, Dinajpur. The proposed deal will pay merely 6% of royalty to Bangladesh and 94% of revenue will be taken by GCM! Moreover they will enjoy 9 years of tax holiday to further increase their profit! The project will roughly bring $200 billion to GCM and only $7 billion to Bangladesh in terms of financial benefit.

Seilm says govt. don't care about environment and are determined to use open-pit mining in Phulbari

Dhaka, June 20 (bdnews24.com)– Ruling Awami League MP Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim has spoken out strongly in favour of coal extraction regardless of any environmental damage it may cause.

The senior leader also criticised those protesting coal extraction, especially through open-pit method, and said extraction was necessary to boost power generation.

"There are some quarters, perpetually opposed to coal extraction, who claim that it will lead to environmental destruction," he said in the parliament on Sunday.
