Blue Ridge Earth First!, a local chapter of the international Earth First! movement, took over two billboards on Grace street this morning as part of the state-wide week of action, declaring “Virginia is for Mountain Lovers”.
Blue Ridge Earth First! is comprised of Harrisonburg, Blacksburg, Charlottesville and Richmond residents, and believes in no compromise in defense of the land and culture of the people of Appalachia. Their current focus is the opposition of Mountaintop removal coal mining, and Dominion’s new coal-fired power plant in Wise County. These two banners are a message to students, residents, and politicians of Harrisonburg to educate them about the ecological devastation taking place in their own state and elsewhere.
Hi Friends, just saw this go across http://www.blueridgeef.org. As of 11:45 this morning, I saw that the things were still up. Way to go BREF! Check out more here
