“As UBS profits, my people suffer”

Adam Hall of Glen Daniel, West Virginia was one of 14 people arrested yesterday at actions targeting UBS, a major financier of mountaintop removal.

Adam locked himself down to the entrance of UBS’ NorthAmerican headquarters while others dropped a banner and locked down inside the building.

As UBS continues to fund the destruction of communities in Appalachia, it was time to bring the fight to UBS’s home in Connecticut.

The 14 people arrested are being held on a total bail of $260,000. Read more about yesterday’s actionshttp://handsoffappalachia.com/ and donate to the bail fundhttp://bit.ly/Ltg4zF.

UBS: Hands Off Appalachia! Teach-in

Sunday July 14th at 7pm (post Food Not Bombs) Come to the Wingnut Anarchist Collective at 2005 Barton Avenue for a workshop!

What: Hands Off Appalachia! is an urban-based campaign demanding UBS wealth management company change their official policy and stop funding companies that engage in mountaintop removal coal mining. UBS provides funding and investment services to Patriot, Arch and James River Coal Companies. Those three companies, operate active strip mines in Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia.

HOA!’s Teach-in consists of a presentation about the campaign and collaborative discussion around next actionable steps with community members.

What’s UBS?

UBS is a Swiss Bank.

What’s Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining?
Mountaintop removal coal mining (MTR) is a form of strip mining that was developed in the 1970’s as a method for extracting coal cheaply. Companies use explosives to remove the top layers of soil and rock from a mountain ridge, exposing the seams of coal for easy access. The valley-fills that accompany mountaintop removal are poisoning water supplies, causing cancer and birth defects, devastating local economies, and displacing large segments of Central Appalachian residents.
