GJC Stands in Solidarity with Communities Resisting Barrick Gold’s Alleged Human Rights Violations

The Global Justice Clinic stands with communities in Alaska, Argentina, the Dominican Republic, Nevada, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, and the Philippines as they participate in a Global Week of Action against Barrick Gold from April 11-16, 2023. As Barrick prepares for its Annual General Meeting on May 2, 2023, frontline communities are calling out the gap between Barrick’s human rights rhetoric and their lived reality. These communities allege oppressive violence, water pollution, violations of Indigenous Rights, and destroyed livelihoods. Beginning in summer of 2022 and along with Earthworks and Mining Watch Canada, GJC has supported communities near Cotuí who are claiming serious environmental and health impacts linked to Barrick’s Pueblo Viejo mine in the Dominican Republic, and raising concerns about opacity in plans for the mine’s expansion.
