On Monday, Oct. 21, at 7 p.m., Grand Forks will join dozens of communities worldwide to screen Gold Fever, an “eye-opening and inspiring” documentary about the arrival of Goldcorp Inc to a remote Guatemalan village. The screening will take place at Selkirk College room 2. Admission is by donation and the public is welcome.
Gold Fever will shine a light on the harms to health, community and environment brought by transnational industrial mining and the connections to our own communities. As part of a global action, we hope to raise visibility of these issues here in Grand Forks and show our support, alongside dozens of other communities worldwide.
