#DisruptPDAC: Debunk Their PR!

Help us mess with the world's largest mining convention's pristine -- and misleading -- marketing! Let's use PDAC's own hashtags to debunk their PR!

The Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC), which organizes an annual convention in March and carries out lobbying efforts in favour of the Canadian mining industry throughout the rest of the year, describes themselves as “the leading voice of the mineral exploration and development community.” They claim to encourage “best practices in technical, operational, environmental, safety and social performance". Meanwhile, the Canadian mining industry continues to cause social and environmental devastation everywhere it goes around the world. 

The PDAC convention is dedicated to telling compelling stories about the mining industry’s successes and innovations, especially in the realm of "corporate social responsibility" and sustainability. But we know better! Don't let them get away with using this convention as yet another shiny PR opportunity to cover up industry harms and repress dissent. Using all of this year's PDAC hashtags, this Thunderclap will mess with the world's largest mining convention's pristine marketing and inject some truth into their social media.

In Toronto? Come to these two upcoming events about PDAC!

PANEL: https://www.facebook.com/events/257840327984860/
Join us for a panel discussion that dissects the “Belly of the Beast”: Toronto’s financial district and the reach of its tentacles throughout the global mining industry.

BUS TOUR: https://www.facebook.com/events/731516720336337/
Join us on a bus tour to untangle the secret webs of power and money that connect our city to some of the most harmful and toxic mining and extractive projects around the world. The tour will end with a rally outside PDAC on its opening day!
