Two Ipili Indigenous women made the long journey from Papau, New Guinea to Ottawa to highlight abused suffered at the hands of Barrick Gold, a Canadian mining company.

The company offered to remedy a program of money and services.

But the women say it was not completed.

And now they are lobbying the Canadian government.
