Come one, come all!
On October nineteenth and twentieth the coal industry’s “Coal Quality ’05” expo will occur in Huntington West Virginia. This meeting of industry reps is centered around coal processing plants, those clusters of silos, stacks and conveyors from which Appalachia’s signature death soup – sludge is born. Whether it is looming over an Elementary School as in Sundial WV, or being injected into abandoned underground mines poisoning Logan County’s water table, sludge spells one thing for Appalachia – danger.
Join Mountain Justice Summer, MUpeace and OVEC as we confront this travesty. Come to Huntington and add your voice to the masses. There will be a candlelight vigil for the mountains on Wednesday October 19th from 7:00pm – 8:30pm in front of the Holiday Inn where many of the conference-goers will be staying. On Thursday the twentieth we will march on the convention center housing the expo, and proceed to the Army Corps of Engineers’ office. The march will meet at Pullman Square at 3:30pm and last about an hour and a half.
