Black Canada affair: Écosociété and Barrick Gold reach an amicable agreement

Écosociété Editions announce the end of publication of the book Black Canada: Looting, Corruption and Crime in Africapublished in 2008, claiming to have reached an amicable settlement with one of the parties in the dispute between them and mining company Barrick Gold.

“With this regulation, Éditions Écosociété and the authors of Black Canada They also intend to extricate themselves from a 40-day trial and multiple proceedings, which in themselves represent enormous financial, human and moral costs,” said a press release from Écosociété Editions on Tuesday.

“This withdrawal in no way represents a rejection of the work of the authors Delphine Abadie, Alain Deneault and William Sacher or of the editor. In just a few years of its existence Black Canada: Looting, Corruption and Crime in Africa will have reached thousands of readers,” affirm the Écosociété editions, adding that they remain convinced that the work deserves publication.

The settlement between the two parties states that Écosociété made “a significant payment” to Barrick Gold, the amount of which was not disclosed. Additionally, the document states that the “authors acknowledge that they have no evidence of Barrick’s involvement in Tanzania in 1996.”

Barrick Gold, in turn, recognizes that the authors' thesis (…) that the presence of several mineral resources, including gold, in the Congo was one of the main reasons for the origin of the conflicts in these countries and that the presence of transnational mining companies in a war-torn region such as can have unforeseen and serious consequences in the African Great Lakes.
