Join us in D.C. this December: Coalfields Expressway, Rally to Stop the Hijack!

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

Tell the FHA a Strip Mine is NOT a Highway

On Thursday, Dec. 5, we need your support to rally in front of Federal Highways to expose the Coalfields Expressway for what it really is: a stripmine highway.

The Coalfields Expressway is a Virginia highway project that has been hijacked by the coal industry so that they can seize land through eminent domain, blow up mountains, bury streams with mining waste and ignore environmental protections while doing so.

RSVP now to join us on December 5.

Federal Highways will determine whether this project moves forward without any additional review or whether it is put on hold until the environmental impacts are fully considered. They need to hear directly from you that this project is nothing more than a mountaintop removal project being disguised as a highway.

Join us:
When: 12 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 5
Where: Federal Highway Administration
             1200 New Jersey Ave SE
             Washington, D.C., 20590

RSVP now!

Also if you haven’t yet, please sign this petition to Federal Highways, which will be delivered on December 5 during the rally.

The choice is clear to us; we need to make sure it is clear to them. See you in D.C. this December.
