Health as a mobilising tool against extractive projects

Aug 12 2016  9:00 - 11:30

Join the People’s Health Movement for a discussion about how activists have used health arguments to strengthen anti-mining organizing and how others can benefit from incorporating a health perspective into their campaigns. Partners will share their experiences organizing against uranium mining at Baker Lake, to serve as a starting point for others to strategize and learn about the strength in approaching anti-mining organizing work through a health lens. Other partners at the session may include MiningWatch, activists from Latin America, and physician activists opposing open pit mining in Western Canada.
