OMI Lacombe Canada’s Office of Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation (JPIC) is pleased to invite you to attend and participate in a two-day symposium on responsible mining.
The Cry of the People: Extractive Industries and Global Justice will be held all day Friday, November 7th and on Saturday morning, November 8th, 2014 at St. Paul’s University, 223 Main Street, Ottawa, Ontario." The keynote speaker will be the world-renowned theologian Father Gustavo Gutierrez.
"The Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, including Canadian Oblates, work in many countries like Kenya, Guatemala, Bolivia and Peru, where issues of responsible mining come before our missionary members and the people they serve. For this reason, we have asked the Office of JPIC OMI Lacombe to work with several partners in the church and civil society who have long experience in these issues to organize a symposium on mining and social justice."
