1 and 2- From It’s Getting Hot in Here about Mountain Justice Spring Break:
Mountain Justice Spring Break is a chance to learn more about how extractive industries like coal, hydro-fracking for natural gas and nuclear energy have sucked billions of dollars in resources from the land, while leaving behind environmental and social problems and a ravaged land.
From March 2-10 in Virginia, and March 10-17 in West Virginia, MJSB will be in the historic old mining town of Appalachia, Virginia, in the far western corner of the state of Virginia, in an area that is being heavily impacted by mountaintop removal mining.
Registration for MJSB is now live! Cost includes all food for the week, lodging and the programs. MJSB is suitable for student budgets!
