On Friday, August 31, Mountain Justice Summer called for action against Bank of America for their funding of companies that are leveling mountains in order to get at the black rock buried within. These companies are the financial apex of a society bent on putting profit before people. They irreversibly destroy eco-systems, communities, stable global climates,
while fattening the pockets of corpracats in Richmond, New York and other places far from the poisoned lands their parisitic capitalism leaves behind.
Over 20 cities in the US took part in the day of action. In my Bio-Region (Shenandoah-BlueRidge) the newly formed Blue Ridge Earth First! organized local actions in Harrisonburg and Blacksburg. You can read reportbacks as they come in at the group’s website below.
