VANCOUVER MINING COMPANY PLANS WORLD'S LARGEST GOLD MINE ON ALASKA NATIVE LAND

See video

Living off the land, Alaska Natives defend the world's largest salmon runs against the impacts of the world's largest gold mine, the proposed Pebble Mine.

We Can’t Eat Gold,, a new independent documentary covered in the Guardian, opens a space for Alaska Native elders and youth to share their subsistence ways of life, before the U.S. government decides whether to permit Vancouver, BC based mining company Northern Dynasty Minerals LLC. to excavate a toxic open pit mine among the lands and waters in Alaska's Bristol Bay that Yupik and Athabascan tribes have called home for over 350 generations.

The film is screening at Vancouver, BC's Just Film Festival Saturday, March 1st at 4:00 PM at the Langara College of Higher Learning: Theater 5,  100 49th Ave W, Vancouver, BC.

Director Joshua Tucker will host a Q&A after the screening.
