Abstract

to them (NC, 6­7 Oct, 12 Oct, 24 Oct 2006). After a month-long blockade, the police liberated Doniambo, but only two of its four ore sources upcountry were functioning. The rpcr and ae traded barbs over alleged political plotting behind the strike, while the cstnc adopted ustke's tactic of on-again, off-again picketing and blockages (NC, 14 Dec, 17 Oct, 20 Oct 2006). The cstnc even shut down the local newspaper temporarily for what it considered unfair reporting (pir, 7 Nov 2006), while repeated negotiations stalled. Nea went to court for his appeal of a conviction from the previous year of blockades that had condemned him to three months in prison. The judge upheld the conviction and sentence, but told Nea that he could appeal to a higher court, and that there would likely be a "more or less generous" amnesty granted after the 2007 presidential elections for union-related offenses. By midNovember, Nea was softening his general strike demands, was arrested for diverting sln funds and, with two associates, was fined us$20,000, and soon was offering to resign from the sln (but not his union) if the company did not fire nine of his union members.
