The Last Mountain - Premiere Charleston, WV

It was the evening of June 10th and I was scrambling frantically to find a parking space in downtown Charleston, WV. That evening the premiere screening of the documentary Last Mountain was playing at the Capitol Center. I entered the theater and could feel the electric energy of a movement. I witnessed the core of this movement. Some people were gearing up for the March on Blair Mountain the next day, including advocates like Josh Fox (director of the documentary Gasland). Others were long time MTR activists, but we all shared a common vision.....we all want Mountaintop Removal to end.
