Fighting the abuses of Canadian mining companies: Maude Barlow| June 13, 2012
Last weekend the Council of Canadians organized a two-day conference to expose the environmental and human rights abuses of Canadian mining companies. Our next three podcasts will feature speakers from this conference.
Maude Barlow is National Chairperson of the Council of Canadians. Last September, Maude Barlow travelled to Guatemala to bear witness to the struggles of communities fighting to preserve their environment and protect their health against destructive Canadian mining projects.
The conference was dedicated to the memory of anti-mining activist Bernardo Vasquez Sanchez who was murdered in San Jose de Progreso, Mexico in March of this year.
