Jan Roberts: commemorating a true warrior

Jan Roberts, who has recently died, was one of the ‘ancestors’ of London Mining Network. She co-founded Partizans, which has spent the last three and a half decades holding Rio Tinto to account for its impacts on indigenous communities, mine workers and others. It was Partizans that called together a number of other organisations in London in autumn of 2006 to discuss what more could be done to hold London-linked mining companies to account – and the result was LMN. We mourn Jan’s death and honour her example.
