Stand with Appalachia to end mountaintop removal mining
On Monday, September 27, coalfield residents from West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia, concerned citizens from coast to coast, and environmental, faith and social justice groups marched from EPA headquarters to the White House with one urgent and resounding message: Abolish mountaintop removal mining.
This mobilization, called Appalachia Rising, comes as the EPA is considering one of the largest mountaintop removal projects yet -- the Spruce No. 1 Mine project in West Virginia.
Stand in solidarity with Appalachians directly impacted by this extreme, egregious form of mining by taking action below!
Call on President Obama and EPA head Lisa Jackson to veto the Spruce Mine project -- and abolish mountaintop removal once and for all.
