A FREE event hosted by the Mining Injustice Solidarity Network

WHEN:  May 5-6, 10am-5pm

WHERE:  University of Toronto, Earth Sciences Building - 5 Bancroft Ave.

SCHEDULE:  see schedule at www.solidarityresponse.net

Join us this year as we host our 4th annual Mining Injustice Conference! Learn about the work of communities in Canada and around the world that are resisting the negative impacts of Canadian mega-mining projects. Share ideas and collaborate on strategies in solidarity with community members who suffer at the hands of Canadian mining corporations, which confuse "development" with exploitation and environmental degradation.

This year's theme will simply be "Resistance" and will highlight the struggles and victories of peoples living in mining-affected communities.

Speakers from Barriere Lake, Attawapiskat, Ontario, Quebec, Guatemala, Colombia, Papua New Guinea, Tanzania, Chile, Argentina, El Salvador, the Philippines, Tibet, and more.

 Keynote speakers include Avi Chomsky and Francisco Ramirez.

There will be FREE food and snacks. Childcare will also be available.
