Abstract [en]

A film about the Talvivaara mine in Sotkamo, Finland. Produced within the research project Dálkke: Indigenous Climate Change Studies.

"Don't be afraid, we come in peace and offer jobs!"  The mine was not going to have any harmful effects on the surrounding areas according to the CEO. However, this soon turned out to be false. The impacts of the mine in terms of pollution of water courses and lakes is enormous. Both due to a failure of the tailing dam, and also of the constantly ongoing pollution.

This is a filmpresentation of a research project, within the Dálkke: Indigenous Climate Change Studies, FORMAS Dnr 2017-01923, led by Dr May-Britt Öhman, Uppsala University, within the Swedish National research programme on climate.
