people going into the QEII centre look at a map showing 25 communities are being focibly evicted to enable BHP's
huge expansion plans for the Cerrejon coalfield

 

 People going in to the BHP AGM have to walk past the display of the villages, while protesters apologise over-profusely
 and move the villages out of their way

 Campaigners hold a Medact banner about the Samarco Dam in Brazil 'Is Life Worth A Dam

 Cerrejon plan and villages are moved out of the way of another man apparently going to the BHP AGM

 

 and they persuade on e man to walk over the plan on the ground
