Goldcorp AGM Protests

26/04/12 – While Goldcorp held their Annual General Meeting in Timmins, Ontario, about thirty solidarity activists gathered outside Goldcorp’s offices in Toronto. They said they wanted to make sure people hear about Goldcorp’s shameful human rights and environmental record at its mine sites, particularly the Marlin Mine in San Miguel Ixtahuacan, Guatemala.

Organized by Amnesty International Toronto Office, Breaking the Silence Toronto, CAMIGUAm and the Mining Injustice Solidarity Network, the activists brought newspapers with headlines that don’t usually get printed, featuring messages from Mayan communities surrounding the Marlin Mine.
