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

    Throughout Mining Justice Month, from May 18-31, please join Amnesty in welcoming Sister Maudilia López Cardona who will speak to audiences in Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick about the legacy of Goldcorp’s Marlin mine in western Guatemala.  She will be joined in Ottawa by community leader Aniseto López Díaz for a public event. The two human rights defenders will speak about building hope and resilience after more than a decade of resisting a major Canadian gold mine. Indigenous peoples living near the mine are bracing themselves for a new wave of economic, environmental, labour and social impacts now that the mine is closing. Maudilia and Aniseto will discuss ways in which Canadians and Amnesty members can support them.

    >> Sackville, May 24th 

    >> Ottawa, May 29th
