While HudBay’s shareholders meet inside for their Annual General Meeting (AGM) on May 8th, the company and its leadership will stand accused in a people’s trial outside on the sidewalk. A 15-foot puppet will stand in for the defendant, HudBay CEO David Garofalo, as a judge and jury comprised of members of the public deliberate on HudBay’s responsibility for grave abuses suffered by communities in Guatemala and Canada.The people’s trial will highlight real testimonies from Indigenous Q’eqchi’ communities in Guatemala, including forced evictions, the murder of community activist Adolfo Ich and the gang rape of 11 women. The company also stands accused of violating the inherent land rights of the Mathias Colomb Cree Nation in Manitoba.
Come out to take a seat at our People’s Trial in solidarity with affected communities, and help us serve justice to these corporate criminals!
