Mountain top removal is one of the most destructive forms of energy known to man. The Hobet 20 should be recognized for their bravery in standing up to the greed and destruction of the coal industry, not held in jail on excessive bail of $500,000.
We need you to do everything in your power to get these brave people out of jail and ensure their charges are dropped.
