Missoulians March Against Coal Exports

Just over one week ago, for the Weekend of Action Against Coal Exports, close to sixty people marched through downtown Missoula to raise publicity around the issue of coal exports, and to hold accountable the politicians and corporations allowing the coal industry to profit by compromising our health.

University of Montana students, members of Occupy Missoula, and others marched to the offices of Representative Denny Rehberg and Senator Max Baucus, both of whom have supported pro-coal pieces of legislation in Congress. ┬áThe group also visited Wells Fargo, one of the top 20 funders of coal projects worldwide, and took time to stage a die-in, and transform ATMs at the bank into “truth machines” that inform customers what their money is being used for.

Check out the photos from this event, and get ready to see more actions like this coming out of Montana.  The struggle to protect our communities from coal exports is just beginning.
