Extractives and forced displacement: A case study of Laguna Larga

Tuesday, April 5, 7 p.m. ET / 4 p.m. PT

Between the borders of Mexico and Guatemala is a place called Laguna Larga. Its current residents are forcibly displaced due to greed, violence, and environmental injustice. In this workshop, we will use this community’s example to learn about the harm caused by intersections of environmental devastation, criminalization of environmental activism, and unfettered capitalism. Join AFSC staff for a presentation and discussion about these interlocking issues.

Facilitators: David Tobasura, Human Migration & Mobility Consultant
