Mountaintop Removal Sit-In
Stop Mountaintop Removal, the killing of mountains & families alike. As early as 1965, a 50-car convey of coalfield residents made the same trek as today's protesters to the governor's office in Frankfort, and called on him to enact enforceable laws to keep absentee coal companies from "ruining our farms and fields and streams." Yet still, Governor Beshear refuses to listen to the people who Try to live in those mountains. Please call, write & join the action to save the beautiful hills, as well as saving the Jobs of KY miners. The Sit-in is happening in Frankfort this weekend. Call your representative or Congressman, write, get involved. This is your state, these are your neighbors who are being poisoned by tailings & fouled water & losing their jobs to giant machines. Mountaintop removal is Mechanical destruction.. no miners need apply. Please don't let the Governor allow this beautiful land to be destroyed. Mines don't require the Removal of mountains, or the loss of pristine valleys & streams.
