Reverend Billy brings the mountaintops back to Chase bank

We've been hearing updates from across the country of activists and groups who are protesting Chase bank's role in financing mountaintop removal coal mining in Appalachia. This may be the most creative protest yet...

On March 21st Rev.Billy and his gospel choir built a mountain in the lobby of a Chase branch on 2nd Avenue & 10th Street in Manhattan, NY made from the "murdered mud" of Coal River Mountain in West Virginia. Perched on top they left a letter for the CEO of Chase Jamie Dimon. Rev. Billy and choir make a mountain, singing "Bring back the mountain children, Chase is gonna bring back the mountain!" You can read the Rev's reflection on the protest here.
