As many as 2,000 Kentucky miners rallied at the state capital yesterday to protest a bill aimed at stopping a mining technique known as "mountaintop removal." If passed, thousands of miners could be put out of work and the economic well-being of the area could be severely impacted.
This WKYT.com report provides a short description and video of the miner’s actions.
Kudos to the miners for standing up for their way of lives and for defending the mining industry’s proactive actions to reclaim mine sites as wel as its provision of thousands of jobs and economic stability to the area.
