would indebt the Northern Province for a long period, in an age when multinationals use debt to keep small countries under their control while they loot their resources. ustke camped out in front of the French High Commission and coordinated with other unions and protest groups to blockade Goro, strike at Tontouta Airport, and slow down trash pickups and gas distributions, while opponents erected their own roadblocks in counter-protest (NC , 15 Dec, 17 Dec 2005). On 24 December, the smsp decided to construct the Northern nickel plant with Falconbridge, who would completely finance the project with help from the smsp dividends, while the State approved smsp acquisition of title to Koniambo. The sln would receive title to Poum, but only after Eramet had lost its court battle to retain Koniambo. It remained to be seen if inco would buy Falconbridge (NC , 24 Dec, 27 Dec, 28 Dec 2005).
