The 90 Year Battle for Blair Mountain. There will be No Going back!0
In 1921, West Virginia coal miners rose up against the coal companies and fought to unionize, battling big coal’s paramilitaries in the largest armed uprising since the American Civil War. 90 years later, the Battle of Blair Mountain rages on as hundreds of miners, activists and environmentalists march 50 miles to stop the mountaintop removal that they say threatens the water, health and history of Appalachia. But the miners here say coal is everything and that they’re also fighting–to survive.
