social justice movement terminology for interpreters and translators - because more bilingual movements are stronger movements!
Saturday, May 9, 2015
I'm outraged about unethical and environmentally irresponsible Canadian mining in Latin America, and particularly Colombia. So I'm looking forward to donating interpreting at the screening and discussion of Crude Gold here in Toronto on Thursday at 7 pm at Beit Zatoun (612 Markham) (full info here).
This documentary pulls together four shorts profiling people in Colombia resisting Canadian mining. I've seen one of them and it was fantastic. I'm looking forward to seeing them all together.
My other bloglooks at colonial patterns in international solidarity and ways that we might change them, and talks about my research on international accompaniment and how it uses difference and privilege to make space for peace. The latest entries are listed below.
