Justice Unserved

Justice, that blind old bat, has swerved off the highway, into the woods and is headed right for the quarry!

EmmaKate Martin and Benjamin Bryant, protesters attempting to block access to Massey HQ in Boone, W. Va on May 17, have been hit with $100,000 bail. This for charges of trespassing and littering. Uh huh.

Let’s see if I’ve got this right. Massey makes billions blasting the tops off ancient mountains, ignoring safety regulations and regularly KILLING its own employees through criminal negligence (29 just last month, remember?), and CEO Don Blankenship is out and about, doing fine, sipping wine. Meanwhile, activists attempting to non-violently protest these abuses receive enormous penalties for inconveniencing the aforementioned abusers.

Wanna help? Call Boone County Magistrate Snodgrass’s office and demand a bail reduction. (304) 369-7360

    What’s sad is that you came back…and then disappeared again.
