Climate scientist, James “Handsome Devil” Hanson, gets arrested along with 100 other protesters who refused to disperse from the sidewalk in front of the White House

Larry ‘Git Along’ Gibson, a longtime opponent of mountaintop removal, is among about 100 people arrested outside the White House following a march by hundreds of Appalachian Rising protesters opposed to the use of the coal-mining technique in Appalachia.

Congratulations to Appalachia Rising for a wonderful day of action! Support the prisoners! Go to Appalachia Rising for more.
