On Wednesday, over 100 activists protested against Barrick Gold outside the Metro Convention Centre, where Barrick Gold was holding its annual shareholders' meeting.

Barrick says it is "the world’s largest gold producer, with a portfolio of 25 operating mines, advanced exploration and development projects located across five continents, and large land positions on the most prolific and prospective mineral trends."

Protesters say "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 anyone who dares to report on it."
