Protesters Stop Coal Shipments Through Civil Disobedience
Five people boarded an immense coal barge and chained themselves to the ship, immobilizing it for 3 hours. At about the same time, a group of protesters stood on a road with signs protesting mountaintop removal coal mining. They blocked 9 coal trucks for the duration of their protest.
The road protesters were dispersed by police without arrest. The protesters on the barge are facing criminal charges.
