Mineral Policy Institute
The Mineral Policy Institute is an Australian-based non-governmental organisation that specialises in preventing environmentally and socially destructive mining, minerals and energy projects in Australia, Asia and the Pacific. The institute as formed in 1995 in response to the internationalisation of Australia's mineral industry and requests for assistance from overseas. The Institute works with other organisations, including Greenpeace to protest violations of the Basel Convention related to illegal dumping. Someone called "Tesha Beaumont" has been quoted by Australia's ABC as being a representative of the Mineral Policy Institute, it is not known whether this "Tesha Beaumont" is the same one who appeared on an ABC radio interview as a "legal observer" for the highly controversial WRC Rally Australia Tweed when she implied that protesters had been about to disrupt the Repco Rally.
