Tickets are free but please book via Eventbrite to avoid disappointment!

And Richard Solly from the London Mining Network will report back from his recent visit to the world’s largest opencast mine in Colombia, Cerrejon, a mine linked to brutal evictions, pollutions and malnutrition amongst local communities. Drax burns coal from Cerrejon and wood pellets from the southern US.
