Ugly mining monster Rio Tinto holds its Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 15 April
at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, Broad Sanctuary, London SW1.
Global mining union IndustriALL and affiliates from the UK and other European countries will lead a demonstration outside from 9.30am.
Come and show your support for workers, Indigenous communities and others affected by the operations of this global mining giant .
The company’s AGM begins at 11am.
After last night’s great event, Voices of Resistance, what can we all do to support workers and communities suffering because of Rio Tinto?
Here are a few ideas – see if any of them appeal to you, play to your own strengths, come up with your own suggestions!
Join the union-led demonstration outside the Rio Tinto AGM, 9.30am on Tuesday 15 April (http://londonminingnetwork.org/2014/04/rio-tinto-the-ugly-truth-demonstration-9-30am-tuesday-15-april/)
Inform yourself: read the information at http://londonminingnetwork.org/rio-tinto/ and sign up to the LMN email news list – use the sign up form at the bottom of our home page, http://londonminingnetwork.org/.
Ask your pension fund, bank, insurance company, local authority or any other organisation you are involved with if it has investments in Rio Tinto, and urge them to pull out.
Write to your MP and tell them that it is unacceptable that companies like Rio Tinto, listed on the London Stock Exchange, are allowed to get away with the kind of behaviour highlighted by our overseas speakers.
Get together with like-minded friends, form an affinity group and decide what other action you want to take.
Let us know at LMN if you would be interested in taking part in an international day of action against Rio Tinto.
