New Gold is a Canadian mining company operating gold and silver mines in the United States, Mexico, Australia. The company is also involved in projects and exploration in Canada and Chile. 

New Gold is being targetted because it is operating an illegal mine in Cerro San Pedro, Mexico. Also for its repeated and well documented human rights and environmental abuses in Mexico as well as violating indigenous self-determination at its joint venture project at Chile's El Moro mine. 

People will be rallying outside New Gold's Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, May 4th, to tell shareholders that the abuse has got to stop.
