Clinton Foundation event in Morocco bankrolled by controversial mining firm

Former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation’s Global Initiative are being hosted this week at a five-star luxury hotel in Morocco by one of the world’s most controversial mining companies, criticized for “serious human rights violations” by the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice.

The Moroccan government-owned mining company OCP operates in disputed international territory in a remote part of the Sahara Desert, and the firm has been criticized for removing the resources without adequately compensating the impoverished people who live there.

“Anytime the human rights of a population are systematically suppressed in this way, it’s a serious concern, and I think it’s worthy of attention,” said David McKean, who has studied the issue for the RFK center.

OCP is paying $1 million to help host the prestigious event and throw a private cocktail reception, to the dismay of human rights activists.

    You want to help people, so you spend a million dollars in a 5 star hotel. The only people that helps, are rich crooks. Anyone who votes for Hillary is a rotten person. They think, if she gets elected they will get free stuff. Hillary cares nothing about people, only the money she can make fooling them.

    Until somebody has the guts to stand up and charge them with a felony or some other charge – stop writing about them. I’m sick and tired of hearing how bad they are and how rich they are and how corrupt.
