Revoke Massey Energy's corporate charter

Delaware may be a long way from the coal mines of Appalachia, but the state plays a role in enabling one of the most reckless and irresponsible coal companies in the U.S.

The corporate charter of Massey Energy -- a mining company which has racked up tens of thousands of safety and environmental violations, and is responsible for the deaths of dozens of coal miners at the Upper Big Branch mine -- was issued by the state of Delaware.

But Delaware doesn't have to keep enabling Massey's environmental devastation and disregard for mine safety.

A growing coalition of environmental groups, including our friends at Rainforest Action Network and Appalachian Voices, is calling on Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden to revoke Massey Energy's corporate charter.

Tell Delaware Attorney General Biden: Revoke Massey Energy's corporate charter.

To:
Delaware Attorney General Biden
Delaware must not continue enabling Massey Energy's repeated violation of safety and environmental laws. Please take immediate action to revoke Massey's corporate charter.

Sincerely,

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      These oligarchs should be in jail, not licensed to do business by the State of Delaware. How much death and destruction does it take?

      We need an epidemic of moral values with reference to our environment. Without our environment we will have nothing. It is time for our culture, corporate and otherwise to become responsible for our lives in a major way. People are more important than money.

      Killing laborers and contamination aren't responsible business.

      Since Massey Energy's criminal laxity caused the deaths of twenty-nine miners at the Upper Big Branch Mine, and since their environmental record is also an appalling list of violations, they should not be allowed to continue operating. Please revoke Massey Energy's corporate charter, so they cannot continue to flout the law and endanger human life and the environment.
