Saturday, April 21st. – 10 Trinity Sq. @ 6 PM
Every year in April, LACSN celebrates Solidarity Month with our communities and the world. This year, we are proud to team up with many organizations, host events, and support others who are defending their rights and those of others. LACSN’s theme for this month is “In defense of”, we stand shoulder to shoulder with organizations, individuals, and states who defend their different causes. We launched the month with the panel discussion “Canada vs. Venezuela”.
From defending their land in Palestine to the water defenders in Honduras to earth defenders on Turtle Island, to the defense of sovereignty and autonomy in Venezuela. We stand with all those who struggle to stand for what they believe in, in defense of their cause, we stand with our brothers and sisters, and honor them on this month of April 2018.
As such we invite you to join us to “Tribute to the Land Defenders” as we celebrate the life of those who were killed defending the natural resources of Mother Earth in Latin America and beyond, against mining, hydroelectric and agro-industries among others. We also want to demonstrate our solidarity with those who have been criminalized for the same struggles.
