Blair Mountain is an important part of our history and deserves to be off limits to mountaintop-removal mining.

 Climate Change - Earth burning
Sign the petition: First of all, coal and mountaintop-removal mining are just wrong and Climate Change scientists say we don’t need new sources and can’t risk the results of continuing in the ways of our dirty past.  But besides that, we should pay tribute to a place that changed the course of the labor movement forever — protect the West Virginia mountain where coal miners fought for their right to unionize or allow Big Coal to blow the top off Blair Mountain in exchange for a simple plaque?
