GLOTOWN/LOVE EVERYBODY artist BIG KENNY performed at a rally on CAPITOL HILL YESTERDAY (9/15) against the practice of mountaintop removal coal mining. BIG KENNY performed as part of the NATURAL RESOURCES DEFENSE COUNCIL’S MUSIC SAVES MOUNTAINS campaign, an effort started in 2009.
BIG KENNY said: “The coal industry may be here with their so-called ‘FACES of Coal’ but we are here with our voices of the mountain. The mining companies do not speak for those of us who love APPALACHIA.”
There is an APPALACIA RISING rally scheduled for SEPTEMBER 25th through SEPTEMBER 27th as well. Thousands of people from across APPALACHIA will travel to WASHINGTON to call for an end to mountaintop removal mining.
