Paul Corbit Brown is a photographer and activist from Appalachia in the USA. He is in Europe to campaign for our banks to stop financing a project which is trashing their environment, impacting on health and contributing to climate change.
The process known as Mountaintop Removal involves blasting the top off of mountains, to access coal. As a byproduct, tonnes of rock are dumped into the neighbouring valley and spreading toxins into the environment.
Taxpayer owned Scottish bank RBS provide finance for companies involved in this utterly devestating activity.
On the eve of the bank's 2013 AGM, Paul will show us pictures from Appalachia and talk about the consequences of mountain top removal from the communities in its shadow.
The event is free and includes tea or coffee upon entry. Donations to cover costs will be welcomed. Please register to attend at www.foe-scotland.org.uk/MTRexhibition2013.
