Let it be known that activist Corina Lang of Southern Illinois was so moved by what she learned from a Heartwood conference about mountaintop removal coal mining that she pimped out her truck with banners and literature and took off on a five week journey across the US, going as far as Seattle, spreading the message about the evil of mountaintop removal.

“It doesn’t matter what your politics are. Most people think this is wrong,” says Lang. She’s gotten a little funding for her trip, and much of her support has come from churches in the southern states affected by the practice.

“Many people there have strong faith. They believe this is a sin against God.”
