Our Struggle for Kayford Mountain and Reflections on Mining and West Virginia.mp4


In the summer of 2009, members of Media Mobilizing Project, along with organizations from the Poverty Initiative visited Kayford mountain in West Virginia on a trip hosted by the Direct Action Welfare Group, a local organization. While there, we heard from Larry Gibson, who has spent years defending the mountain his family has lived on for generations from being blown away through strip mining. In this clip you will hear Larry talk about what the mining industry has cost his family and neighbors, the forceful means mining companies have used to do their business, and the need for all of us to unite in saving Appalachia.
