|The Role of Unions & Pensions in the Struggle for Mining Justice, April 15 & 16
The CUPE Ontario International Solidarity Committee proudly invites you to a public teach-in on Friday April 15th and Saturday April 16th in Toronto. This event is free and open to the community.
The Role of Unions & Pensions in the Struggle for Mining Justice
The Canadian Mining and resource extraction industry is a dominant player nationally and internationally. The negative impacts of resource exploration and extraction have had negative consequences on the environment and human rights violations here in Ontario and around the world. The Canadian government is an important player in the mining industry, actively supporting companies' overseas operations through the provision of both financial and political backing.
Workshops and panels will examine the social & environmental damage caused by Canadian mining corporations. Participants will discuss and explore strategies for accountability & justice.
Join us to show our support for healthy & just mining practices. We hope to see you there.
