9 Held in West Virginia Anti-coal Actions

Today, 17 Mountain Justice and Climate Ground Zero activists were
arrested in actions against mountaintop removal and coal sludge
impoundments. Eight of the 17 have been released on their “own
recognizance” with no funds required to let go. The remaining
nine have been charged with trespass and been given a cash bail of
$2000 (which means a bailbondsman can’t be used to get them out
and the full amount must be paid i.e. they want $18,000 in cash).
