OPIRG-Guelph presents:
CANADIAN MINING IN CENTRAL AMERICA

GOLDCORP Inc’s Open-Pit, Cyanide Mining In Honduras and Guatemala
— Versus —
Community Development, Environment & Human Rights Well-being of Indigenous and Local Populations
Honduran environmental leader Carlos Amador and Rights Action’s Francois Guindon will speak about Canada’s involvement in unethical mining practices in Guatemala and Honduras.

Amador, a community leader and environmentalist from the mining-affected Siria Valley region of Honduras, and Guindon, a Quebecois activist working on mining and human rights issues in Guatemala, want to engage Canadians in discussions on mining conflicts, uncovering environmental and health harms by Canadian mining giant, Goldcorp, in Central America, and to draw critical attention to key investors in the company (including the Canadian Pension Plan and numerous pension funds across the country).

Join us for a discussion on what can be done to challenge Canadian corporations benefitting from present-day colonial exploitation.
