April 4, 2015
Angelica Choc (Q'eqchi') comes from Guatemala to shame one of Canada's biggest mining coroporations: Barrick Gold, at the doorsteps of their headquarters in downtown Vancouver.
Angelica and others from the Mayan Q'eqchi community of El estor, Guatemala have filed three suits against HudBay Minerals for the murder of 2 mining activists and the gang-rape of 11 women from Lote Ocho. Alleged abuses were comitted by the companies security personnel at one of HudBay's now closed mines. (Canadian mining company Barrick Gold recently settled in court to compensate Papa New Guinea women after allegeed rapes - settling is a good tactic if you don't want your violent abuses made public).
