CSRT » mining (in)justice conference
From a Facebook group - here is an upcoming conference in Toronto. Thanks, Tanya!
Mining (in)justice: at home and abroad is a conference on the Canadian mining industry (including Tar Sands) set to take place in Toronto on the weekend of May 7-9, 2010. It will feature leaders in movements against Canadian mining companies both within and outside of Canada and provide space for growing our own movements in alliance with communities impacted by this industry.
This is a follow-up conference to last year’s mining conference, which brought over 20 front line defenders to share their stories and strategize solutions to ending corporate impunity and strengthening the struggles against destructive mining projects around the world.
This year, we are expanding the conference into a 3 day event, providing more space for participants to meet each other, form alliances, and plan actions to foster a movement in solidarity with impacted communities.

Also notice, the BC Government trying to ban this film called Blue Gold, about a gold and copper mine in northern British Columbia, it says is biased in favour of the Tsilhqot’in First Nation, who are opposed to the project.
