Isabel Caicedo Polanco, from the Popular Feminist Organization (OFP) in Colombia, speaks at the November 26, 2017 Montreal march to mark the International Day Against Violence Against Women about the violence that women, and entire communities, in Colombia face at the hands of Canadian mining companies. Her message is a call to action to the Canadian government and concerned Canadians to make the Canadian mining industry more accountable, and to leave their territory in peace. Isabel is in Canada on a speaking tour organized by Kairos to mark the 16 Days of Action to End Violence Against Women.
On November 26, Tess Tesalona from the Centre for Philippine Concerns, along with other women and men from the Philippines marched in Montreal to remember the 16 Days of Action Against Violence Against Women. Canadian mining companies have a long history in the Philippines and disasters at gold, copper, silver and other mines have meant devastating consequences for local communities.
