Protest Drummond Coal!

Thursday, November 20; 3:30 PM Downtown Birmingham, Alabama

Start your weekend of action against the SOA with a demonstration at the Drummond Inc. home base in Birmingham, Alabama. Drummond is a major supplier of United States coal, the majority of which comes from one of the world's largest open-pit mines in La Loma, Colombia. The corporation has been accused of serious human rights abuses of Colombian workers, including the deaths of three union leaders. 

At the demonstration, hear about the life-threatening risks union leaders Estivenson Avila and Jesús Brochero face as they fight to protect mine worker rights and safety.
