Protests at Anglo-American mining AGM

QEII Centre, Westminster, London. Tue 30 Apr 2019



 Inminds had come to demonstrate before the other protesters arrived. Anglo American supplies Israel with

 diamonds which are cut in Israel. The diamonds make a major contribution to the Israeli economy and some

 of the diamond firms give special contributions to sections of the Israeli Defence Forces, responsible for the

 shooting of protesters in Gaza. As well as killing many - including medics and reporters - they use special bullets
  which expand inside the body to maim protesters, resulting in many having to have their legs amputated.
Ammunition of this type is generally illegal under international law.

 The other protesters arrive and set up next to where In minds are already protesting

 As well as the London Mining Network they also incude War on Want
     
 A protester wears Extinction Rebellion XR badges on jacket and hat and carries a placard against Anglo American corrupt activity in Colombia

 
     
 

 Health professionals from Medact arrive to join the protest

 

 

 The protesters pose for photographs before those who hold a share go into the AGM to ask questions

 

 

 

 

 

 After the shareholders have left, othrs speak
