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