WhenTuesday, Nov. 6, 2018, 4:30 – 6 p.m.
Description

In Guatemala’s Ixcán region, Indigenous communities have resisted the imposition of the Xalalá Dam for over a decade.

Learn from the lessons of their successful organizing in conversation with the Network in Solidarity with the People of Guatemala and Maya Mam community leader José Gómez. On behalf of the Association of Communities for Development & the Defense of Land and Natural Resources (ACODET), Jóse will speak about their struggle to protect land and water, cultivate Indigenous leadership, and build community power in the face of harmful corporate and state-led megadevelopment.
