HOT OFF THE PRESSES MOUNTAINTOP REMOVAL PROTESTS CONTINUE

MOUNTAINTOP REMOVAL PROTESTS CONTINUE

 COAL RIVER VALLEY, W. VA, At 5:00AM this morning 14 concerned citizens entered onto Massey Energy’s mountaintop removal mine site near Twilight WV. Four of them scaled a 150-foot dragline and unfurled a 15×150 foot banner that said, “Stop Mountaintop Removal Mining”. The climbers were on the enormous dragline, a massive piece of equipment that removes house-sized chunks of blasted rock and earth to expose coal, and remained there for over three hours. Meanwhile nine others deployed a 20×40 foot banner on the ground at the site which read, “Stop Mountaintop Removal:  Clean Energy Now”.
