MountainTop Removal is the Devil! MountainTop Revival is the Resurrection!
Our mandate as resisters to Consumerism can be very direct, like Buy Nothing Day. Now we are resisting dirty coal in Appalachia. Well, our Life After Shopping theology insists that strip mining is just as big a Consumerizing Devil as predatory retail. We’re as addicted to energy as we are to lollipops and thongs. Fossil fuel and tchotchkes make us push shopping carts in the same LAKE OF HELL-FIRE!
Mountaintop Removal’s key investor is JP Morgan Chase, so in our search for the Life After Shopping we must follow its money from the branch on the corner that evicted a local shop – through to the poisoned aquifers and coal dust, back to children with elderly-sounding cancers, up to CO-2 emissions and silent springs in beautiful Appalachia.
VIDEO: Now we’re bringing the mountain back to the bank. Earth-a-lujah!
