The Network in Solidarity with the People of Guatemala (NISGUA) works to build ethical international solidarity with indigenous civil and environmental rights activists. The need for ethical solidarity is critical following the recent death and kidnappings of indigenous environmental activists challenging Tahoe Resources, a U.S. based corporation. Jennifer Ristau's talk will explore how Guatemala's history of genocide and environmental degradation are intertwined and how to be an effective ally. The film Granito: How to Nail a Dictator goes into detail about some of the genocide survivors NISGUA accompanies.

The event, co-sponsored by the Social Justice Committee, benefits the Guatemala accompaniment program, which relies on community donations. More events and information at http://jenneristau.wix.com/solidarity
