RAN Occupies EPA

According to the Rainforest Action Network:

“After entering the EPA building, activists sat down in the center of the lobby, locked themselves together with metal ‘lock boxes,’ and began to blast West Virginia’s adopted state song, John Denver’s ‘Take me Home, Country Roads,’ with intermittent sounds of Appalachia’s mountains being blown apart by MTR explosives spliced into the song. An additional activist has climbed to the top of the EPA front door on Constitution Ave and is standing with a banner reading: ‘Blowing up mountains for coal contaminates Appalachia’s water, Stop MTR.”

This occupation is taking place to protest the EPA’s approval of a new Mountain Top Removal mine in Pine Creek, West Virginia.
