As authoritarian rulers continue to attack liberty and justice around the world, we must reach out in solidarity and look inward in reflection.
Recent anti-democratic regimes in Honduras and El Salvador connect to Canadian mining companies and the Canadian state. Resource extraction often goes hand in hand with repression.
The Providence Centre for Justice, Peace, and Integrity of Creation and Development and Peace-Caritas Canada invite you to join Joan Kuyek, author of Unearthing Justice: How to Protect Your Community from the Mining Industry and Donald Hernandez of Centro Hondureño de Promoción para el Desarrollo Comunitario-CHEPRODEC, for a panel discussion explaining the situation and offering opportunities for action in solidarity with land defenders and those targeted by authoritarian regimes in Latin America.
The event takes place September 22nd, 6:30-8 PM, at the Central Branch of the Kingston-Frontenac Public Library (2nd floor). Admission is free; there will be an opportunity to make a donation. You may also attend online – to register for the Zoom email Kiegan Irish: email@example.com
