The Aberfan Disaster & Community Action

Last week marked the 49th anniversary of the Aberfan Disaster. On October 21, 1966, a coal waste pile in Aberfan, Wales, collapsed, killing 114 schoolchildren and 28 adults.

A couple of years ago I wrote an article for the After Coal Blog entitled “What Happens in the Aftermath? The 1966 Aberfan Disaster Remembered Through Community Action.”
