NISGUA's 2011 tour "Mining and Violence in Guatemala: Indigenous Women Resist" is about to begin!

Victoria Cumes Jochola from the Tz’ununija’ Indigenous Women’s Movement will speak about the impacts of mining on women and how women are advocating for their rights to water, food, housing, health care and free, prior, informed consent on projects planned in indigenous territories.

The tour will travel from New Hampshire to North Carolina, offering presentations and exchanges in churches, schools and community centers.  Please check the itinerary, mark your calendars, and spread the word about a NISGUA event in your community!

Not on the East Coast?  You can still tune into live streaming radio, follow the NISGUA blog for tour updates and participate in the tour action.
