Demonstration Against Trade Agreements at World BankMurrow Park, The World Bank Headquarters 1818 H Street, NW, Washington, DC, United States
A Canadian company called Pacific Rim is seeking to exploit gold reserves in El Salvador by opening a mine that could poison the water supply for more than half the nation’s population. Four Salvadoran anti-mining activists have been assassinated during the course of the struggle over these resources. Now, Pacific Rim is suing El Salvador for up to hundreds of millions of dollars under the U.S.-Central America “Free Trade” Agreement for not approving a mining license. Please encourage your friends to come to the demonstration at the World Bank on Thursday at noon.
