Historic Blair Mountain, the site of one of the largest labor uprisings in U.S. history, in 1921, is under assault by the coal industry.

Coal companies have plans to literally blast Blair Mountain off the map through a process called mountaintop removal mining -- the most destructive form of coal mining there is.

President Obama and West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin have the power to save Blair Mountain, but the coal industry has a powerful lobby, so they have yet to do so. We need to make this a national issue. Please sign this petition and share with all your friends and family. Together we can save Blair Mountain and the rest of Appalachia from mountaintop removal, once and for all.
