This March, Mountain Justice Spring Break (MJSB) will bring together coalfield residents, college students, environmentalists and concerned citizens who are interested in learning more about mountaintop removal coal mining and hydro fracking.
From March 10-17, 2013 MJSB will be in central West Virginia. From March 1 - 10 there will be a separate Mountain Justice Spring Break in the town of Appalachia in Wise County, Virginia. For more information on the Virginia MJSB, please go to MJSBvirginia.wordpress.com
We will spend a week cultivating the skills and visions needed to build a sustainable energy future in Appalachia. Through education, community service, speakers, hiking, music, poetry, direct action and more, you will learn from and stand with Appalachian communities in the struggle to maintain our land and culture. Mountain Justice Spring Break will also offer a variety of community service projects in northern West Virginia.
Mountain Justice Spring Break will be held at a beautiful 57 acre county park surrounded by wooded hills and a pretty West Virginia mountain creek. The Doddridge County Park is easy to find and convenient to Interstates 77 and 79. It is located on Snowbird Rd. off of US Route 50, 3 miles from a small town, West Union, WV.
