CORRECTION: We described Saunders in this post and on-air as an “anti-mining organizer” but she brought it to our attention that she identifies herself as a mining justice organizer, and does not oppose all mining operations. We apologize for this error.
Mining justice organizer Sakura Saunders speaks to CKUT about events last week in Toronto, where activists occupied a city park overnight before demonstrating at the site of the shareholders meeting for multinational mining giant Barrick Gold. CKUT spoke to Saunders on Monday, just after she had completed working on the 2012 Mining Injustice Conference.
This interview, co-produced by Katryna Van Vliet and David Gordon Koch, aired on the May 8 edition of Ecolibrium.
