Rio Tinto AGM protest 16 April 2015
Last week’s London AGM of mining multinational Rio Tinto was covered in the Guardian along with news of the BP AGM, which took place at the same time. City AM and the Morning Star both mentioned the event and Industrial Minerals carried a remarkably positive piece for the trade press.
Meanwhile, our friends in IndustriALL Global Mining Union reported on the AGM on their website – and you can find their new report on Rio Tinto there as well.
Chunky Mark the Artist Taxi Driver recorded video interviews with several of the visitors – Chief Real MacKenzie, from the Innu people of Quebec, Canada;  Sukhgerel Dugersuren of Oyu Tolgoi Watch in Mongolia (a two part interview, part 1 and part 2), and Vansler Standing Fox of the Apache people on the San Carlos Resrevation in Arizona. Chunky Mark also made his own comments on the political influence of lobbyists and mining companies.
