Massey Now Discussing Moving Marsh Fork Elementary

posted by scott parkin

Last week, a trio of West Virginia’s top politicians blasted Massey Energy’s arrogance and blatant disregard for human life after the company stubbornly refused to assist the Raleigh County School District move the school located next to a toxic coal prep plant, toxic waste pond and MTR site. Now Massey is openly discussing moving the school.


For years, grandfather Ed Wiley campaigned to get the school moved, now after much public education, direct action and grassroots organizing the school may be getting moved. Although don’t be surprised when Massey tries to turn this into a big PR moment to make themselves look like the white hatted heroes swooping in to save the children of Marsh Fork.
