Unmasking BHP: protest mega-mining & climate breakdown
17 October, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 pm
Join us on Thursday 17th October outside QEII Centre, Westminster, 10-11.30am to protest British-Australian mining company BHP while it holds its annual shareholders’ meeting (AGM)!
We will be holding space for four frontline defenders from Latin America as they seek accountability from the world’s largest mining company in and outside the AGM, from the devastation left in the wake of the Samarco tailings (mine waste) dam disaster in Brazil, to the forced displacement of communities surrounding the Cerrejón opencast coal mine in Colombia, and the communities suffering drought in Chile due to mega-mining projects.
If you can’t make the demo, come to our evening event the day after: https://www.facebook.com/events/508825739949644/
