Western Mining Action Network Conference

Advocates for responsible mining, community leaders, and researchers from Canada and the USA met in Vancouver October 3-5, to learn from each other and discuss strategies in the battle for responsible mining.

Over 130 people participated in workshops on a variety of topics ranging from Investor Strategies to Building Alliances. There were also opportunities to get to know one another: an Indigenous Circle took place each day, and there were regional caucus meetings and a number of discussion tables and small groups.

The conference was organized by the Western Mining Action Network. The meeting also elected the 19-member 2004 Steering Committee. Canadian representatives on the Steering Committee are: Amy Crook, Jackie-Hookimaw-Witt, Lorraine Rekmans, Jim Tsannie Sr. and Joan Kuyek.
