Coal River Valley Protests Citi

By Rainforest Action Network

On Nov 14, 2008, activists from the Coal River Valley, an area hard-hit by mountaintop removal coal extraction, took action against Citi in Beckley, WV.  They distributed fliers outside a Citi Financial office, informed Citi employees that their employer had a major role in destroying their communities, and handed fliers to customers entering the office.  Then they headed off to a meeting with an Appalachian region-wide effort to stop mountaintop removal.
