Repudiation of Barrick Gold in Argentina

  • Proposed By: Partido Ecologista Verde on behalf of Argentinian Greens (not full members)
  • Adopted by the 4th Global Greens Congress, Liverpool 2017

One of the main goals of the Global Greens is to support its fellow Greens in government around the world in addressing concerns that violate our fundamental Green values. Megamines play a terrible role in perpetuating extractivism in less advantaged nations, using their corporate power to influence the democratic decision making processes of countries with weaker environmental standards. Barrick Gold is currently exploiting the Argentinian people by allowing atrocities against nature to occur under its watch. 

The Green Party of Canada rejects the inaction of the Canadian megamining corporation Barrick Gold, which until now has refused to take meaningful action to resolve the issues concerning over a million litres of cyanide spilling into the Potrerillos River, and we demand that the government of Argentina closes this mine immediately.
