After the screening of This Stolen Country of Mine, moderator Marieke Eyskoot will talk to the indigenous activist from the film Pául Jarrín Mosquera and an expert from the European Commission. The Commission will soon be presenting a new policy about critical raw materials and in the discussion afterwards we will ask how Europe can obtain the raw materials needed for the green transition safely and fairly. We will also hear Pául’s view from his unique perspective as a grassroots activist.
This program is a collaboration with the Representation of the European Commission in the Netherlands.
Paúl Jarrín Mosquera is leading the indigenous resistance against the Chinese colonisation of Ecuador. This puts him up against Ecuadorian state power, which defends the Chinese economic interests with full force.
