May 14 at Dalston Solidarity Café – Helkivi – Kurdish Community Centre (33 Dalston Lane, E8 3DF)
LMS is introducing ‘Tolvanera’, a documentary film that focuses on the struggle of El Bajío ejido and the struggle of local farmers against Fresnillo mining, one of the world’s largest gold mines. LMS will be joined by London Mining Network and Global Majority VS for a conversation on Extractivism, Human Rights abuses and resistance in Mexico and Latin America. The film will be followed by a Q&A with Tolvanera’s producers and farmers from El Bajío.
The SZN will join with a stall to share info and raise funds for the Zapatista communities in resistance.
