When: Thursday February 12 6-8PM

Where: UC Room 103

From financing and trade pacts to lax rules and meddling in other countries’ laws, the Canadian state has made itself a haven for multinational mining companies that are causing social and environmental havoc at home and abroad.

Join us for a discussion about the Canadian mining model and how communities are responding in defence of their lands and lives.

Featuring Jennifer Moore, Latin America Program Coordinator of MiningWatch Canada.

This event is part of A Month in the Mines, a month of mining justice programming brought to you by OPIRG and The Peak Magazine.
