Philly Takes on Mountaintop Removal at the EPA

posted by scott parkin

Yesterday about 20 people showed up at the EPA in Philly (the regional office where they make decisions on permits in places like West Virginia) and fliered and did street theater.

Protesters celebrated Halloween a day early at the Philadelphia regional Environmental Protection Agency office on Friday. Chanting “Mountaintop removal is a trick, not a treat. EPA: give us something sweet!” the activists called for the EPA to end mountaintop coal removal, including the blasting currently taking place on Coal River Mountain in Coal River, WV.
