In the case of Goldcorp Versus Mining Affected Communities
July 14 2012 2-5pm
VIVO 1965 Main St
Goldcorp is building a reputation for itself in Vancouver as a philanthropic corporation. Ever wonder where the money comes from?
Health professionals, affected community members and environmental and human rights supporters will hold a Health Tribunal July 14-15 in San Miguel Ixtahuacán, Guatemala (Mayan Mam community and site of Goldcorp’s Marlin Mine), to assess and publicize the health impacts of Goldcorp’s mining operations. Representatives from Goldcorp-affected communities in several Latin American countries will provide testimony at the tribunal.
Please join us on Saturday July 14 at 2pm at VIVO (Main St at 4th Ave) when we hold a concurrent session on the effects of Goldcorp internationally and here in Vancouver, Goldcorp’s headquarter city. Doctors, nurses, and Goldcorp-affected community members will be Skyping in to present to Vancouver from the Health Tribunal itself.
This event is a free public event. Those with direct relationships to arts, culture, health and education organizations that receive funding or donations from Goldcorp are especially encouraged to attend. Simultaneous translation English-Spanish provided.
