Day 1 of a 3-day march on Coal River valley, site of Massey Energy's neo-colonial MTR sites. Appalachian Uprising!

"Protesters marched past Marsh Fork Elementary, an elementary school less than three-hundred feet from a coal-loading silo and in the shadow of a 2.8 billion gallon Toxic Sludge impoundment. They also marched past the old UMW headquarters, a hotbed of radical unionism and militant strikes in the late seventies, which now sits abandoned after Massey energy successfully drove unions from the area in the eighties."
