Stop the destruction of Appalachia for the 1% Profit!
Call to Action for March 9th and 10th: Occupy the Lobby and Move your Money
All over the world, people are standing up to demand an end to the tyranny of the richest 1%. From Egypt to New York, Russia to Oakland, China to Appalachia, the 99% of the world is standing up, sitting in, speaking out, and demanding real Democracy and a healthy life for all people.
In 2005, Mountain Justice joined the decades-long Appalachian resistance to demand an end to King Coal’sdestruction of the oldest mountains in the world. Today, Wall Street’s Biggest Banksters continue to finance King Coal to the tune of 10’s of Billions of dollars per year, getting richer off of destructive coal plants, strip mines, and the genocidal poisoning ofcommunities.
In 2012, Mountain Justice and the Movement to End Mountaintop Removal stand with the rest of the 99% in rejection of Wall Street greed and in opposition to the destruction of any community in the name of “Profit” or “Progress”.
Our friends at Greenpeace, Rainforest Action Network, and many others have already gotten the ball rolling and all across the country we are greeting Spring with people’s actions to demand, create, and build a better world.
We ask you to join us this March 9th and 10th for a day of action. We will demand that Wall Street banks stop funding the Death Cycle of Coal by Occupying Bank Lobbies and Moving our Money away from the banks that lend the most to mountaintop removal mining.
Already groups in Virginia, Tennessee and North Carolina have committed to taking action in solidarity with every community directly affected by the greed of Wall Street and the atrocities of King Coal. Will you stand with us?
