"Subterranean Voices": Business & Human Rights in the Coal Mining region of Northern Mexico
19:00-21:00 | 29 November | Dublin
PBI Ireland, the Latin America Solidarity Centre (#LASCWedsTalks), and the Mexico-Ireland Solidarity Collective (MISC) will host a public talk in Dublin with two women human rights defenders (WHRDs) from Coahuila in Northern Mexico - Cristina Auerbach and María Esmeralda Saldaña Both women work alongside coal-miners and other workers in the extractive industries in their struggle for justice, safe and fair working conditions, and basic human rights. They advocate for workers rights under extreme pressure and difficult conditions and have been targeted because of this work. They are in Europe after presenting at this year's UN forum on Business and Human Rights in Geneva.
Please join us as they tell us first-hand of their experiences defending "subterranean voices/voces del subterraneo" in Northern Mexico. Presentations will be followed by a Q&A session and discussion.
Please confirm you attendance at your earliest convenience to [email protected].
