Kincaid Talks Mountaintop Removal Mining Protests on Pacifica Radio

Bob Kincaid of Coal River Mountain Watch gave an interview to Pacifica Radio yesterday after appearing on an IPA news release. He spoke on Flashpoints, a broadcast newsmagazine hosted by Dennis Bernstein, to discuss the mountaintop removal mining protests in West Virginia.

He said: “The coal companies also have their sights fixed on Blair Mountain and they want to blow it up. And in the course of blowing it up they’ll do what they do with all our mountains and all our mountain communities: they’ll destroy our heritage, they’ll destroy our Appalachian present, and they’ll destroy our Appalachian future.”

Listen to Kincaid here, starting at the 13:00 mark.
