FAO-Montreal is a Canadian section of the Mexican Frente Amplio Opositor, which is struggling to defend the ecologically and historically important site of Cerro de San Pedro from destruction by Canadian mining company New Gold (formerly Metallica Resources). FAO-Montreal was founded in August of 2007 during a delegation of the FAO to Montreal.

For a brief background of why the FAO opposes the mine at Cerro de San Pedro, see this document.
