16 September 2013

It is with grave concern to see the upcoming Pam American Food Festival at the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto being sponsored by Pacific Rubiales Energy; a Canadian based oil and gas company listed on the Toronto and Colombian stock exchanges.  Pacific Rubiales Energy has been accused of being engaged in serious human, Indigenous, environmental and labour rights violations in Colombia. These abuses have been well documented by Colombian civil society and also Canadian based organizations.
