SPARKING CONNECTIONS: Environmental Human Rights Defenders: Resisting Destructive, Extractive Projects
November 17, 2020, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Latin America is a dangerous region in the world to defend land, Indigenous territory, and the environment.
In this workshop we will hear firsthand from two courageous women defenders, Maria Josefina Caal from Guatemala and Jani Silva from Colombia, about important struggles to protect the environment, rights, and life itself in the face of resource extraction projects with destructive consequences for water that communities depend on.
Our goal is to spark understanding and connections to strengthen our solidarity action.
Date: Tuesday November 17th
Time: 4pm pacific, 5pm mountain, 6pm central, 7pm eastern, 8pm atlantic, 8:30pm Newfoundland
