Come and hold Canadian mining corporations accountable
The CUPE Ontario International Solidarity Committee is organizing a teach-in to inform union and community activists about the role of Canadian mining companies in violating human rights locally in Ontario and around the World.
CUPE Ontario proudly invites you to a public teach-in on April 15th and 16th in Toronto. This event is free and open to the community. Read below for more details.
The Role of Unions, Pensions in the Struggle for Justice in Mining
Friday April 15 & Saturday April 16
Ryerson University, 55 Gould St. Oakham House, Toronto
Located at the corner of Church and Gould streets, just one block north of Dundas and two blocks east of Yonge street.
The Canadian Mining and resource extraction industry is a dominant player nationally and internationally. The negative impacts of resource exploration and extraction in terms of environmental degradation and human rights violations have been well documented. Furthermore the Canadian government is an important player in this industry, actively supporting mining 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 mining practices. We hope to see you there.
