Amnesty International’s Kelowna group will present the documentary All That Glitters Isn’t Gold: A Story of Exploitation and Resistance, on Friday, Jan. 28, 7:30 p.m., at the Okanagan College campus theatre.

This documentary tells the stories of community members living near Canadian-based Goldcorp’s San Martin open-pit gold mine in the Siria Valley of Honduras. 

They discuss the negative effects of the mine- from health problems to lack of clean water. 

This mine was opened in 2000, the first to be developed under Honduras’ controversial new mining law.

Proceeds from the film will be used to support those in Central America affected by the negative effects of the mining. 

For more information, call 250-769-4740.
