posted March 14, 2009
Dozens of activists from across the country on Saturday staged a demonstration at the Tennessee Valley Authority’s headquarters, which resulted in the arrest of 14 individuals.
The protestors were participating in a “die in” in front of the building.
They said the event was held “in solidarity with communities affected by the destructive impacts of mountaintop removal coal mining and the survivors of the recent coal ash disaster in Harriman.”
“It is time for TVA to take full responsibility for its destructive behavior,” Eric Blevins, an organizer with Mountain Justice, said.
