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 Bank, and, ultimately, the resilience of one woman who refuses to back down.

This film will be open to watch virtually from 12:00 AM- midnight on July 27th.

This film will be accessible to watch for 72 hours, from April 27th to April 29th.

This walk will build off the presentation that Sarah Ford at Forest Carbon Works will give on the previous Monday night, July 19 at 5:30 pm on providing carbon market access for smaller landowners. In addition to being a practicing forester in Vermont and a forester for Forest Carbon Works, Sarah studied under Dr. Bill Keeton at UVM where they did much of their work at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park.  Come learn how landowners can enhance the carbon stored on their land, how they can avoid the depletion of carbon and how they can participate in carbon markets.

The Wilder, Bellows Falls, and Vernon hydro-electric facilities on the Connecticut River started the process of securing new operating licenses from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in 2012. Final license applications were submitted in December 2020. While Great River Hydro, the owner, proposed operational changes for their three dams that will result in a big win for the river, there are more opportunities to advocate for regarding recreation, fish passage, and cultural properties. Join CRC River Steward Kathy Urffer to find out more about changes to how these facilities will operate and additional concerns that have not been addressed.
