Coal Action: Opencast Mining and Communities

After the last deep coal mine closed in England in 2015, coal continues to be extracted from opencast mines as it is financially cheaper. However what might be financially cheaper may have a higher price for communities and the environment.

Communities from Russia, Colombia and the UK bring together this exhibition of artefacts, photos and poems of how their everyday lives and cultures are disrupted by opencast mining and how they are resisting the destruction of their homes, communities and land.
