Reclaiming the Future: Decolonizing hearts and ‘mines’ in Guatemala
May 22, 2018, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The AI Toronto Business & Human Rights & Indigenous Rights Group along with partners KAIROS, Mining Injustice Solidarity Network and UFMJ will be hosting Guatemalan Indigenous Land & Water defender, Sister Maudilia Lopez Cardona, as she speaks about the legacy of Goldcorp’s Marlin mine in western Guatemala. After more than a decade of gold mining the mine is now closed and affected communities are demanding that the Canadian company and the Guatemalan state be held accountable for future human rights and environmental harms. Maudilia will discuss ways in which Canadians and Amnesty members can help.
Where: AI Toronto offices, 1992 Yonge Street, 3rd floor ( Davisville subway station).
