Power Shift 2011

These photos were taken during Power Shift 2011. A Convention hosted by the Energy Action Coalition for students and youth from all over to learn how to collectively take action and empower others to go green in their local communities and universities. During the convention many local students and activists in Washington passed through as they protested against big coal companies and their supporters, such as PNC and Citi Bank. The coal companies proceed with mountain top removal coal mining, and tar sand extractions that continue to pollute the environment in North America.
