Don’t Let King Coal Strip Away Our History

A friend of mine has put together a zine, Blair Mountain: Don’t Let King Coal Strip Away Our History, describing the two battles for Blair Mountain. The first battle of Blair Mountain was a working-class armed uprising against the armed goons of the coal industry. The second is the upcoming march on Blair Mountain will likely be more polite and is on June 6-11. The short version of the story is that the coal industry wants to blow up the mountain to get the coal out, much as they’ve been doing throughout the entire increasingly-less-majestic Appalachian mountains.
