Dustin Steele and Adam Hall of West Virginia and Fern Benally and Don Yellowman of the Navajo Nation of Arizona speak at length about living in the shadow of coal mining, their first-hand experiences with destructive corporate practices, the importance of community empowerment, the role of education and the fight to maintain self-determination and a sacred connection to their land and culture.

In the second part of the interview, these resisters share their inspiring stories from frontline communities who stand up to the injustice of coal companies every day, issue a call for solidarity in the struggle against extraction everywhere, and together, envision a better future for future generations without coal.

Hear their stories, and join in their struggle.
