south africa: in the wake of arcelormittal
In coalition with many other organizations, Friends of the Earth International launched a publication entitled “In the wake of ArcelorMittal: the global steel giant's local impacts” in May 2008. The publication included case studies on the company's impacts near their operations in Ohio (US), Romania, India, the Ukraine, Luxembourg, the Czech Republic, South Africa, Kazakhstan, and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
On May 13, 2008, activists from Friends of the Earth and other groups attended the ArcelorMittal annual general meeting to protest and question the company's global practices. They also distributed the publication, which can be downloaded from www.groundwork.org.za/Publications/mittal_local_impacts_web.pdf
