9/27/10 — During the Appalachia Rising gathering in Washington DC, Rainforest Action Network, Reverend Billy and the Life After Shopping Choir, and Earth Quakers performed a ‘bring the mountain back to PNC Bank’ action to ask PNC to stop supporting MTR. PNC Bank is currently the largest funder of mountaintop removal coal extraction in the US. The bank locked it’s doors and the legal team negotiated for only 4 of the group to face arrest. Hundreds of Appalachians, coal field workers, and activists were later arrested outside the White House. — photo by BRENNAN CAVANAUGH
