Every day Appalachia's mountains are being destroyed by mountaintop removal. Activists from all over the country have been waging a direct action campaign to put an end to it.

In June of 2009, 14 activists were arrested while shutting down destructive mining equipment. Now they are being sued by the heinous Massey Energy for $350,000. So we're raising money for their legal defense. Come join the party

Party will include music, dancing, beer, wine and solidarity with Appalachia's mountains.

COST:$10-20, sliding scale, no one turned away for a lack of funds
