First Gig: Protest Barrick Gold’s AGM

Protest Barrick Gold!
Rally outside Barrick’s Annual Shareholder’s Meeting, Wed. April 28

Toronto
WHO is Barrick Gold?

Barrick is the world’s largest gold mining company, founded and chaired by Peter Munk. Barrick is one of the biggest forces pushing Corporate Social Responsibility as an alternative to government oversight. With a former executive on the board of the Canadian Pension Fund, and a former Prime Minister on their board of directors, Barrick enjoys public funding and diplomative support.

WHY Protest Barrick?

Barrick takes advantage of inadequate and poorly enforced regulatory controls to rob indigenous people of their lands, destroy sensitive ecosystems and agricultural land, support brutal military and security operations, and sue anyone who tries to report on it. Impacted communities are coming to Toronto to share their undeniable perspectives and shed light on this criminal mining giant. Come out and support them!
