Máxima will not be personally participating. This is a group viewing event, during which we will watch the documentary Máxima: One Woman's Fight Against Corporate Greed.
MAXIMA follows Peruvian indigenous farmer Máxima Acuña in her fight to protect her land as she stands up to the largest gold producer in the world: US-based Newmont Mining Corporation.
Throughout Máxima’s fight for justice, the film provides an illustrative case study in the tactics used by transnational corporations to commit human rights violations and environmental crimes, the role played by non-profits and The World’s Bank, and, ultimately, the resilience of one woman who refuses to back down.
