On April 22 from 1-2:30pm PST / 4-5:30pm EST / 5-6:30pm AST Allied organizations and collectives from Canada, the U.S. and beyond will convene an online teach-in about the peaceful resistance to the Escobal silver mine in southeastern Guatemala owned by Pan American Silver (formerly by Tahoe Resources). We will have guests from the Xinka Parliament of Guatemala, as well as a representative from the Tsilhqot’in National Government in British Columbia who recently traveled to Guatemala as part of a solidarity delegation. We will also share details about how you can participate in a digital campaign in solidarity with the peaceful resistance to the Escobal project in the lead up to Pan American Silver´s annual general shareholder meeting on May 6th.
