This new OVEC design just went up on one of the large billboards on
Interstate 64 near Hurricane, on the way in to Charleston. OVEC owns
the banner used on this billboard. If youd like to rent billboard space
elsewhere when our lease is up after 90 days, just let us know!
Whether youre religious or not, if you love the beauty of
West Virginias mountains, you probably feel these mountains are sacred - and
that it is grievously wrong to blow them up.
We need to continue fighting to bring justice to people whose
lives have been devastated by mountaintop removal/valley fill strip mining. We
need to work to slow the feared onslaught of new mountaintop removal permits,
permits that have the personal blessing of George W. Bush (see article inside
about the hopeful new Pallone/Shays bill introduced in the U.S. Congress.)
But we also need to publicly acknowledge the overall carnage, the ecocide of mountaintop removal, that continues
to go on here. It is just plain wrong for powerful corporations to liquidate the
treasures of our world for their gain.
If youd like to see more billboards like this, or see this design used in
OVEC newspaper ads, could you please send a check to help make this happen?
