There is a stop gap ramp and e-door for entry, but unfortunately Another Story does not have a wheelchair accessible bathroom.

Book Description:

The mining industry continues to be at the forefront of colonial dispossession around the world. It controls information about its intrinsic costs and benefits, propagates myths about its contribution to the economy, shapes government policy and regulation, and deals ruthlessly with its opponents.

Brimming with case studies, anecdotes, resources, and illustrations, Unearthing Justice exposes the mining process and its externalized impacts on the environment, Indigenous Peoples, communities, workers, and governments. But, most importantly, the book shows how people are fighting back. Whether it is to stop a mine before it starts, to get an abandoned mine cleaned up, to change laws and policy, or to mount a campaign to influence investors, Unearthing Justice is an essential handbook for anyone trying to protect the places and people they love.

Joan Kuyek is a community-focused mining analyst and organizer living in Ottawa. She was the founding National Coordinator of MiningWatch Canada from 1999-2009 and continues to do work for MiningWatch and for a number of communities affected by mining.

Judy Rebick is one of Canada’s best-known feminists. She is the former president of the National Action Committee on the Status of Women and was a spokesperson for the pro-choice campaign that won legal abortion in Canada in the 1980’s. A long-time writer and journalist she is the founding publisher of rabble. Judy’s newest book is the memoir Heroes in My Head

Co-Sponsor: The Mining Injustice Solidarity Network (MISN) is a Toronto-based activist group that works to draw attention to and resist the harmful practices of the Canadian mining industry. In solidarity with affected communities around the world, we educate the Canadian public about mining injustice, advocate in support of self-determination in mining-impacted communities, and agitate against corporate impunity.
