Protest Newmont's Crimes Against Native People

STOP NEWMONT MINING! DEMAND JUSTICE FOR NATIVE PEOPLES!
Two Days of Education
In the Classroom and in the Streets of Denver
To Create a Better Future for Ourselves and for Future Generations

Newmont Mining Company is the largest gold mining corporation in the world. It's international headquarters is here in Denver. Wherever its operations reach, Newmont poisons the land, the water and the people. Native peoples have been especially hard hit – in Peru, Ghana, Indonesia, and among the Western Shoshone Nation in Nevada. On Tuesday, April 25, 2006, the directors and officers of Newmont (the people who run and operate the corporation) will be in Denver at the annual shareholder's meeting.

We plan to let them know how we feel about the crimes they are committing.
