Featuring speakers from Friends of the Earth, Indonesia, the event's focus is export coal mining in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia. Australian coal mining investors are playing a significant role in the current push to expand activity, which means destroying some of the world's most diverse and important rainforest areas. BHP Billiton and Cokal have been putting pressure on the Indonesian government to open up protected forests in the Upper Barito Basin.
