Corporations who oversee devastation causing death shouldn't be able to walk away scot-free...

BHP Billiton's Samarco mine in Brazil last week unleashed a wall of mining waste over 10 local villages, killing an estimated 28 people.

The mine's stability has been questioned for years, but nothing had been done. And now, BHP Billiton are doing everything they can to shirk responsibility.

The Annual General Meeting is the most important day of the year for BHP Billiton. Let's make sure that when their company is in the international spotlight, they're greeted by a group of people who won't let the Samarco disaster be swept under the rug. We'll be there with large images of the disaster, to remind the company's executives (and hopefully the media) that we won't forget this disaster.
