In just 5 weeks, members and allies of the United Church will meet at Sandy Saulteaux Spiritual Centre in Manitoba to deepen our understanding of the impacts of Canadian mining around the world and in Canada and take action for mining justice.
Throughout the weekend, we will hear from guest speakers from First Nations Women Advocating for Responsible Mining and the Council of Churches in Zambia, and others, and take actions to make the extractive sector more accountable. We will look at: Implementation of UNDRIP (Bill C262) in Canada, Open for Justice - Ombudsperson Campaign, Divestment, and solidarity between communities.
As the earth, water and people face tremendous risks posed by the Canadian extractive sector, we must find community and courage to act to defend life.
Join us Friday, May 5 (beginning at 6pm) -Sunday, May 7 (ending at 1pm) at Sandy Saulteaux Spiritual Centre for the 2017 United for Mining Justice National Gathering and join a movement to build mining justice in Canada and around the world. REGISTER HERE. Bursaries and travel pool available!
