Hi friends! After some hiatus for traveling and scheming up our next steps, we are back with two quick plugs for the end of November, depending on where you find yourself and how you might be able to contribute to the movement...
This coming weekend, in Stamford CT:
Hands Off Appalachia

The Federal Highway Administration is preparing to seal the fate of the Coalfields Expressway project and they need to hear directly from you that this project is nothing more than a mountaintop removal project being disguised as a highway.
Please join us in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, Dec. 5th as we rally in front of Federal Highways and ensure that agency officials hear our concerns.
When: 12pm Thursday, December 5th
Where: Federal Highway Administration,
1200 New Jersey Ave SE
Washington, D.C., 20590
>> RSVP now! <<
The Coalfields Expressway is a Virginia highway project that has been hijacked by the coal industry so that they can seize land through eminent domain, blow up mountains, bury streams with mining waste, and ignore environmental protections while doing so.
Federal Highways will determine whether this project moves forward without any additional review or whether it is put on hold until the environmental impacts are fully considered.
The choice is clear to us; we need to make sure it is clear to them. See you in D.C. December 5.
