dc rising tide activists go to Mountain Justice Summer Activist Camp, visit mountain top removal site

activists from dc rising tide attended the week long mountain justice summer activist camp in West Virginia last week. while there, they learned new skills, met others in the environmental movement, heard great guest speakers (such as larry gibson and mike roselle), saw an inspiring film on coal, visited a mountain top removal site, and went to the Picket at Petus rally on Saturday (5/22).
