Central America mining talk in Kamloops

The Kamloops chapter of the Council of Canadians will host El Salvadoran activist Vidalina Morales de Gamez at the Smorgasbord Deli, 225 Seventh Ave., on Sunday March 10, at noon.

The Council of Canadians is one of 10 organizations — mining justice, environmental, faith communities and public-interest groups — who have organized a continent-wide speaking tour by de Gamez, a member of the National Roundtable Against Metallic Mining in El Salvador.

The tour is intended will raise awareness about the negative impact of Canadian mining operations on El Salvador and aims to garner international support for Salvadoran civil society’s call to ban metal mining in the Central American country.

The talk is free and open to the public.

For more information, call Anita Strong at 250-377-0055.
