What coal means today…
The Cerrejón coal mine in Colombia is threatening to forcibly displace local communities. People in the Las Casitas community are already suffering health effects from the mine’s pollution and could now be forced to move to even worse conditions or lose their land altogether.
Take action now to tell the owners of the Cerrejón mine to stop this atrocity by following this link.
The Cerrejón mine is financed by UK banks, and the coal is used to generate electricity to warm our houses here in the UK. A quarter of our coal imports come from Colombia. We must stand in solidarity with local communities to demand their rights are respected
