RAMPS is planning a week-long training this summer which will culminate in a physical intervention to halt mining. Even though their name says Mountain People's Survival, actually, it is critical to stop coal for all of us to survive. The direct damage from mining is destroying the forests and causing cancer epidemics locally in Appalachia - while the emissions from coal burning plants are killing trees and making people sick quite literally everywhere. The group is closely aligned with Earth First, anti-fracking, and other environmental groups committed to direct action.
THANKS! Any amount will be hugely appreciated. I'll be posting at Wit's End while I'm there, if I can get internet access - which is not guaranteed, in which case, I'll upload pictures and video afterwards.
