THE Millennium Good Governance Madang chapter supports the two local parliamentarians’ call against sea-bed mining.
President and activist Steven Andambo supported Ken Fairweather (Sumkar) and Anthon Yagama (Usino-Bundi).
He backed former East New Britain premier and East New Britain Autonomy Committee chairman Sir Ronald Tovue who raised objections to sea-bed mining and urged all Momase parliamentarians to unite and say no to it.
 “It is not a matter of stopping the project, it’s too early for such mining, especially when it has not been done anywhere else; why not try it out in Canada.”
“Papua New Guinea is not a trial dumping ground,” Andambo said.
