Big Coal’s sleazy war
Rolling Stone News : June 7, 2012

  Summary:  Recently Appalachian activist Maria Gunnoe traveled to the nation’s capital where she spoke out against environmentally destructive coal mining activity in southern Appalachia. One of the most well-known mountaintop removal activists and a Goldman Prize winner, Gunnoe was not prepared to be escorted out of the room for showing an image of a five-year-old Kentucky girl bathing in orange water polluted with arsenic and other heavy metals.

Earthjustice recently launched a campaign against mountaintop removal, called Mountain Heroes, which gives the public a chance to speak out about ending mountaintop removal. Maria Gunnoe is featured as a hero in the MTR campaign for her courageous and relentless fight against mountain top removal coal mining and for standing up to the industry in the face of its desperate accusations in an attempt to silence her. “I work with many children throughout southern Appalachia, and I’m not going to let this be defined as anything but what it is—obscene,” she said. “What’s most obscene is the idea of a little girl bathing in poisoned water. But that’s what’s happening in southern Appalachia, and people need to know about it. And we need to stop it.”
