Uncle Scam and Ed, whose daughter made the best sign...school, meet sludge impoundment. (You'll get to see the fate of Uncle Scam a little later...)

First off, big thanks to Jen O. for staying true to her heart's course and also informing me about the upcoming events this summer to educate people about MTR mining. Check it!
After a long night of glam-rock sanity, I hopped a ride south to participate in a protest against mountaintop removal coal mining at Marsh Fork Elementary School, the site that you see in my previous post. Thanks to my late night we were a bit bit late for the music and arrived to hear the many local and national speakers. Massey Energy Co., the coal company that has been under fire for its devastating practice of MTR "mining" and building a coal sludge impoundment right next to said school.
