MTR Protest Arrests

Silas House has posted a note on FaceBook about recent events concerning mountaintop coal removal. It is an important and powerful message and I thought it needed mentioning here. Visit Silas' note, as well as the other sites listed.
"The media is not giving enough attention to this story, so please pass the following links onto everyone you know. This is an urgent matter, so I hope you’ll forgive me for seeming dramatic. But it’s time to start yelling. It’s time to start fighting. As much as I love mountains, it’s important to remember that this is about more than mountains."
