COAL MIINING, MOUNTAIN TOP REMOVAL, MOUNTIAN JUSTICE SUMMER

This playlist will be created by you. Coal mining is having a huge impact on the water, land, and communities of Appalachia and the world. Learn about this impact through interviews with coal disaster survivors and about how empowered citizens of the coalfields are taking a stand for their rights today. Learn about the Mountain Justice Movement and www.mountainjusticesummer.org. MJS started in late 2004/early 2005 as a collection of different grassroots organizations that had been fighting for safety in their communities for years. One of MJS' goals was to bring Mountain Top Removal Coal Mining to the attention of citizens outside of the coalfields. Media was one of the outlets though we have repeatedly encountered the media's glass ceiling on reporting major protests of energy related issues. So now we make our own media! The Mountain Justice Movement has evolved to encompass many different struggles as we learn that all struggles are related including antiracism work against the kkk, alternative non coal based Appalachian economies, and monitoring logging and urban sprawl within our communities. Learn about ways that you can get involved to help out with the struggle. The Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, and CitiFinancial are all banks that support coal mining and the building of new coal burning power plants. Don't support these banks and check out www.dirtymoney.org for more info. Post copies of coal related videos for addition to the playlist and spread the word about this playlist. Create your own video(s) expressing your ideas about coal and its impacts. email me at nomorecoal@gmail.com
