Online Teach-in on Community Self-determination in the Face of Resource Extraction in Guatemala and Canada
On Wednesday, April 22, join MiningWatch Canada for “Finding Common Ground: Community self-determination in the face of resource extraction in Guatemala and Canada.” This KAIROS-endorsed online teach-in will focus on the peaceful resistance to the Escobal silver mine in southeastern Guatemala owned by Pan American Silver (formerly by Tahoe Resources).
As some may remember, KAIROS staff and youth delegates visited the peaceful resistance camp as part of the KAIROS Blanket Exercise Youth Exchange with Guatemala in 2017. In 2018, KAIROS visited the camp once again during a trip to Guatemala.
The teach-in will include members of the Xinka Parliament of Guatemala as well as a representative from the Tsilhqot’in National Government in British Columbia. In February, members of the Tsilhqot’in National Government, including Loretta Williams who has contributed to KAIROS’ program on the gendered impacts of resource extraction, traveled to Guatemala with MiningWatch Canada on a solidarity delegation.
