Awards Night: November 4th at 6:00pm

By Rebeca Zuniga-Hamlin

Join us on November 4th to honor the outstanding achievement of The National Roundtable Against Metallic Mining, a campesino-led movement in El Salvador. In March 2017, the Roundtable won an historic legislative victory by securing a prohibition against all metals mining in perpetuity. For a land-poor country with vulnerable water sources and a significant rural population that would be displaced by mining, this was an unexpected and unprecedented accomplishment. http://noalamineria.org.sv

To relate the story of the movement and the details of the legislation, we have invited Ms. Vidalina Morales who is a leader in the National Roundtable.
