  •  Direct action ... (4+ / 0-)

    As head of RAN, you were involved in some of the most interesting direct action efforts in the nation.

    Right now, 100 are getting arrested in DC related to Appalachia Rising's efforts which Sierra Club supported. (See Trash the planet, earn bonuses. Call attention to this, go to jail.)

    What sort of impact do you see this having?

    How can we get media attention to this?

      This was also the first question in the string. I think today's action can have a great impact. When you think of it, it's completely crazy that people would have to go to jail in an effort to stop coal companies from blowing up mountains, burying thousands of miles of streams and poisoning communities to get at a small amount of coal, but that's what is happening today. Clearly, Congress and the Obama Administration need more motivation to outlaw MTR altogether. Let's hope today's action helps.
