Watch this webinar with author, longtime community organizer and mining justice advocate Joan Kuyek where she will talk about the themes in her book Unearthing Justice: How to Protect Your Community from the Mining Industry.

Unearthing Justice: How to Protect Your Community from the Mining Industry has been warmly received by mining justice advocates.

“Kuyek cuts to the on-the-ground realities of mining, revealing industrial formulas and ongoing systemic colonial approaches. Her insight and experience shed light on a new path forward for empowered communities facing mining today,” said Nuskmata (Jacinda Mack), Nuxalk Nation Mining Advisor.

“Unearthing Justice is the most authoritative, valuable, and necessary book written about the mining industry in Canada...Most of all, Kuyek’s dead smart analysis keeps you turning the pages to understand how an industry that literally drains the resources of the earth, our communities, and the public coffers has managed to sustain its spectacular growth and investment. The genius of Unearthing Justice is that it is devastating and empowering in equal parts,” said Shiri Pasternak, assistant professor of criminology, Ryerson University, Research Director, Yellowhead Institute.
