In Canada, most people can speak out freely when injustice is committed. In many countries of the Global South, however, communities are threatened when they seek to protect their rights, especially their right to a healthy environment. This climate of insecurity is often fueled by the presence and influence of corporations, some of which are Canadian. Undaunted, many vulnerable communities fight courageously to defend their rights, their lands and the environment against corporate harm.
This year, Development and Peace’s People and Planet First campaign invites you to stand in solidarity with them and celebrate their work!
To learn more about the campaign, join us for an in introductory virtual workshop from
9:30am – 12:30pm on October 2.
