5 activists with Mountain Justice, Ramps Campaign and Rising Tide North America were arrested this morning while delivering a message to billionaire coal baron, Jim Justice: Clean Up Your Act, now! Today they’re being held in the Roanoke Jail, but you can help support these folks, this action, and any more that may come in the ongoing effort to hold coal barons accountable for the destruction of Appalachia, by donating now to the Mountain Justice legal defense fund.
Mountain Justice has worked for 10 years to support a diversity of tactics in the effort to stop the destruction of Appalachian communities, from petition drives to non-violent direct action. The MJ Legal Defense fund has, and will continue to offer support to anyone who’s freedom is put on the line in defense of mountains. This Fund is wholly supported by individual donations from people that know that every action can move the needle a little bit, and keeps us on the path to an end of mountaintop removal.
