Barrick Gold Protesters Arrested


On Wednesday, protesters gathered outside the Metro Toronto Convention Center where the annual Barrick Gold shareholders meeting was taking place. After a short time of handing out pamphlets, two individuals were arrested for "trespassing" on a public walkway.

This action is part of the May 2, 2007 International Day of Action Against Barrick Gold.

Later that same day, as promoted, activists and supporters peacefully demonstrated outside Barrick's corporate headquarters at 161 Bay Street in Toronto.
