pictures from the Goldcorp protest -- part 2

On Friday, the Canadian mining company Goldcorp had a an Annual General meeting at the Fairmont Waterfront in Vancouver. In that meeting were members of indigenous communities in Northern BC, Honduras, and Guatemala, and their advocates. They have been affected by their mining activities in their communities, and are concerned about the independence of independent environmental impact assessments that have been called for. Please consult Rights Action and the two previous posts for more info.

Meanwhile, maybe 20-25 supporters from various human rights groups were across the street providing their support. This is the second of two posts containing pictures I took at the protest.
