Join us for a special visit & dialogue from: Members of indigenous communities from Chile and Argentina who are actively fighting for WATER and CULTURAL SURVIVAL to prevent ecological catastrophe by LITHIUM MINING in the Andean Highlands. With a desperate demand for alternate "green" energy and efficient batteries to supplement this energy, lithium mining has become a lucrative venture and a basis for environmental injustice. The purpose of this series is to bring forth the voices of overlooked indigenous communities across hemispheres to tell their struggle to maintain their way of life and their fight against lithium mining companies and their respective governments.  More info:  https://www.facebook.com/events/159131145027765/

November 9th  Friday  6:30 p.m.   Sierra Club film night " 500 Years: Life in Resistance
Clairemont Mesa Blvd #101, San Diego, CA 92111 This film is the third of a three-part series depicting the centuries-old struggle of Guatemala's indigenous majority against a powerful elite minority, an aspiring middle class, foreign corporations, and the brutal military that supports them through torture, killings, evictions, burning of villages, and the theft and destruction of Mayan land.  The film depicts the genocide trial of two military leaders, the struggles in defense of indigenous land, and the massive 2015 protests against corruption and impunity that finally united urban middle class protestors with those from the Mayan countryside.  Ongoing protests against mining, oil drilling, and for water rights demonstrates that Mayan resistance in Guatemala is an unfinished history.  More info: https://act.sierraclub.org/events/details?formcampaignid=7010Z00000277EnQAI
