Help Stop Mountaintop Removal at Mountain Mobilization July 25 - Aug. 1
This summer young people and community organizations are stepping up the fight against mountaintop removal with a major Mountain Mobilization in West Virginia from July 25 - Aug. 1.
Organized by the RAMPS Campaign, the mobilization will bring hundreds together in nonviolent direct action—occupying a strip mine to do what politicians, regulators and the courts have been unwilling to do: defend the land and the people.
Join people from all walks of life at the Mountain Mobilization to shut down an active mountaintop removal site in West Virginia.
At PowerShift 2011, imprisoned activist Tim DeChristopher said:
“With only the people in this room, we could send 30 people onto a mountaintop removal site, shut it down temporarily, start to clog up the West Virginia court system. And we could send 30 people the day after that and the day after that and the day after that every day for a year. I believe we would never get to the end of that year because mountaintop removal would end before we reached that point.”

Talk is cheap, says the acting executive secretary of the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity, who begged governments around the world to make sure that 2020 is not another year of conferences and empty promises, but instead is the year to take decisive action to stop the mass extinction of wildlife and the destruction of habitat-sustaining ecosystems, as The Guardian reported.
