"Protestors Emerge From Governor's Office"

Fourteen protesters emerged from a four-day occupation of the Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear’s office in protest of mountaintop removal mining before a crowd of over 1,000 people on the steps of the state Capitol Monday.

In a statement delivered before a cheering throng of supporters, writer Wendell Berry said, “We came because the land, its forests, and its streams are being destroyed by the surface mining of coal, because the people are suffering intolerable harms to their homes, their health, and their communities."
