Goldcorp completes its AGM (annual general meeting) in Canada. The status quo is intact:
- There continues to be no legal or political accountability in Canada (let alone in Honduras and Guatemala)
- There will be no compensation or reparations for environmental and health harms and other human rights violations caused by Goldcorp's mines in Guatemala and Honduras (and beyond)
- Thus far, no comment from pension funds and equity funds across North America that are invested in Goldcorp
