What Part Don't Coal Companies Understand?

"And God saw everything he had made, and behold, it was very good." Genesis 1:31

 

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?
