Gold, Dust and Power: Indigenous Activism and Canadian Mining in Guatemala.
With photographs from James Rodriguez and Paul Lemieux, Gold, Dust and Power brings to life the struggle taking place in the highlands of Guatemala between a Canadian mining company and an indigenous movement determined to defend its natural resources.
The show runs from April 7th-18th at Fem International, 6050 Saint-Hubert, with a vernissage on April 7th. The vernissage includes a panel at 6pm with speakers Ernie Schibli, with over 30 years experience working with human rights defenders in Central America; and Annie Pelletier, a former rights accompanier working directly with indigenous mining activists in Guatemala.
