Canada's Toxic Legacy: Pan American Silver and Mining Billionaire Ross Beaty in Latin America

TUESDAY MAY 11, 4PM PST / 7PM EST

FACEBOOK LIVE IN SPANISH

WITH PARTICIPATION FROM:

Xinka... Parliament of Guatemala

Community members from La Colorada, Zacatecas, México

Mexican Network of Mining Affected People (REMA), México

Shuar Arutam People (PSHA), Ecuador

Ross Beaty will retire as chairman of the board of Pan American Silver - a company that he founded in 1994 - at the company’s Annual General Meeting the day after our event. Beaty is considered Canadian mining-industry royalty, given the millions of dollars he has raised for himself and shareholders. He has also constructed a public image as an environmentalist, philanthropist and leader in corporate social responsibility. None of these portrayals are true to the legacy of community harm and environmental destruction that Beaty’s investments have wrought in Latin America.
