    Ottawa - Reclaiming the Future: Decolonizing hearts and 'mines' in Guatemala

    Please join Amnesty International, MiningWatch, Nobel Women’s Initiative, PSAC Social Justice Fund, and GRITE in welcoming Sister Maudilia Lopez Cardona and Aniseto Lopez Diaz as they speak 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.

    Speakers:

    Sister Maudilia Lopez Cardona

    Aniseto Lopez Diaz, FREDEMI

    Tara Scurr, Amnesty International Canada

    Jen Moore, MiningWatch Canada
