Mountain Justice Summer

Starting Date: 05-22-2005
Ending Date: 08-27-2005

Appalachia, West Virginia
United States
In the tradition of Mississippi Freedom Summer
And Redwood Summer…
Greedy, giant coal corporations have decided that Appalachia is the nation’s sacrificial zone for cheap electricity. Mountain top removal is an intensely destructive form of surface mining for coal. It is the final solution for the forests, mountains, waters and culture of Appalachia. We are calling on all residents of Appalachia, traveling activists, unionists, and concerned human rights and environmental activists to join us in defending the world’s most productive and biodiverse temperate forest ecosystems. Come to Appalachia in the Summer of 2005 and stop mountain top removal dead in its tracks.
