We mourn the families of the seven Freeport miners who were ill and died as a result of their health insurance cut by Freeport.

We were particularly affected by the death of the friend, who hanged himself after being denied hospital treatment for his sick child. We call on Freeport and the Indonesian government to immediately to reinstate the dismissed miners and grant them free access to education and other benefits. The families of the deceased miners must continue to maintain get from the mine operator that they can live worthily.
