The group “Protest Barrick” has been organizing annual demonstrations for the past 8 years against one of the biggest minning companies in the world, Barrick Gold Corp. It takes place in Toronto, in front of the building in which the corporation’s general meeting takes place. This year, the demonstration gathered around 150 people on March 28th. The protesters were joined by Sergio Campusano, president of the Diaguita Huascoaltinos in Northern Chile, and Jethro Tulin, the executive officer of the Akali Tange association and Porgera Alliance.

CKUT member Anouk Millet talked with Darius Mirshahi, one of the organizers of the demonstration at “Protest Barrick”.
