TATAMAGOUCHE – A closer look at international water issues will be explored at an upcoming event in Tatamagouche.
On Tuesday at 7 p.m., the Tatamagouche Centre will welcome Sandra Carolina Ascencio, who is speaking throughout the Maritimes as part of a continent-wide Water Is More Precious than Gold tour to raise awareness of the negative impact of Canadian mining operations on El Salvador.
Carolina Ascencio is a representative of the El Salvadoran national roundtable against metallic mining, as well as an educator and environmentalist. She will also tour more than 20 cities and towns across Canada and the United States.
The discussion will include issues facing El Salvador and other Latin American countries, challenge the practices of Canadian, U.S. and other mining companies, and build relationships with groups in North America, including those confronting their own local mining issues.
