Mountain Justice in the Coalfields! Direct Action Speakers and Screening Low Coal
Community organizers, direct action campaigners, and West Virginia natives, Junior Walk and Brandon Nida, will be speaking about the effects of mountaintop removal coal mining in his community, the interaction of global forces and local corporate control which have allowed violent environmental injustice to occur, and the direct action campaign that is actively resisting mountaintop removal mining in the coalfields of West Virginia.
Following the speaker, a screening of Low Coal, a documentary about mountaintop removal and the divisive campaign to stop it, put at odds with people's jobs in the region. If you've heard "Which Side Are You On?" this film describes the present conflict in working class communities.
Speakers at 6pm, Film at 6:30
