From May 12-25, Professor Catherine Nolin (University Northern British Colombia, Geography Department) and Grahame Russell (Rights Action) are leading an educational, solidarity-building road trip in Guatemala, visiting communities that have suffered State repression (including genocide) in the past, that are suffering on-going repression today while resisting violent displacement and environmental harms caused by global mining companies, hydro-electric dam projects, African palm and sugar cane production, coffee for export, maquiladora sweat-shops.
