Lets Make Sure the Transition to a Clean, Green Energy Future in WV is a Peaceful One

We continue to receive reports that allege coal company bosses and coal public relation groups are attempting to incite their employees to violence against those who speak out against mountaintop removal.  

We ask everyone to continue to practice principles of non-violence with those who might harass or threaten you and to report any incidents of threats, intimidation, bullying or violence to authorities.

We know that most who participate in protests have already had non-violence and de-escalation trainings. If you need a refresher course, please know that OVEC is continuing to offer trainings.

Call OVEC at (304) 522-0246 for details on the next scheduled training or to set up a training in your community.
