People from across the country are converging in Helena, the capital of Montana, for a week of activity aimed at stopping the “best last place” from becoming the new “coal ground zero.”
Coal industry giants are pushing members of the Montana State Land Board to let them build the Otter Creek mine, the “anchor project” in a larger industry scheme to transform southeast Montana and northeast Wyoming into a coal mining industrial zone.
King Coal has used money to influence governments for decades, squashing labor unions, rural communities, and environmental health. Now environmentalists, ranchers, frontline communities, and students are standing up to fight back. Come join in for a week of non-violent action to stop King Coal.
