"Protest Barrick" Speaking Tour in Hamilton

"There is a global resistance to Canadian mining."

Barrick Gold is the world's largest gold mining company, founded and chaired by Peter Munk. With a former prime minister on their board and former executive sitting on the board of the Canadian Pension Plan, Barrick enjoys government funding and diplomatic support.

Barrick Gold takes advantage of inadequate and poorly enforced regulatory controls to rob Indigenous Peoples and communities of their land and livelihoods, destroying sensitive ecosystems, supporting brutal military and security operations, and suing those who dare to report on it. Impacted communities are coming to Canada to confront Barrick, sharing their own undeniable perspectives and shedding light on corporate impunity.

Come out to support them!

On Monday May 9th, come out to the Skydragon Centre to hear from front-line activists from Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, and Tanzania, as well as solidarity activists from Canada, about Barrick Golds impact on communities around the world and what this global resistance looks like.
