Over the years various human rights, corruption watches, environmental, social justice, Indigenous and labor organizations have been pledged in localized mining conflicts and campaigns arising from the damaging impacts of mining projects. In spite of some remarkable challenges, these disparate endeavors have clearly not been sufficient to make real improvement in addressing the ecological and social impacts of mining projects or to significantly modify the defective regulatory regime for mining in Indonesia. That is why besides advocating local people whose rights are harmed by PT. Newmont Nusa Tenggara to file lawsuit against the company, Newmont Watch itself – on behalf of the community – is also taking PT. Newmont Nusa Tenggara to the court for any violation of public interests.

Newmont Watch works to wake people’s consciences and consciousness toward the potential risk of mining project. The main activities of Newmont Watch are:

* Monitor policies and practices of PT. Newmont Nusa Tenggara and government agencies

* Carry out and disseminate research highlighting current problems and impacts posed by PT. Newmont Nusa Tenggara.

* Promote a well-grounded public agenda for reviewing contract regulatory and Newmont’s practices for the sake of local communities

* Increase regional intervention capacity by facilitating information exchange, effective communications and joint strategic initiatives among affected public stakeholders.

* Link with other activists and NGOs around the world to exchange information and strategies around specific projects and corporations as well as policy and legal questions.
