Activists disrupted the world’s largest mining convention to hold a vigil for the people killed in opposition to Canadian mining projects around the world. The protest came four days after Bertha Cáceras, an Indigenous leader from Honduras, was assassinated in her home. This short video was produced for Submedia.tv, an independent media channel run by Franklin Lopez.
I spent several months filming this short documentary in Unist’ot’en territory as the RCMP and pipeline companies increased their presence in the area and attempted to force fracking infrastructure onto unceded Indigenous land. As of May 2016, this video has been viewed nearly 8 million times on Facebook. Edited by Franklin Lopez.
