We All Sing Glory to the Mountains

Please come out in support of the movement to end mountaintop removal and surface mining!

On Thursday, July 15th, from 7:30-9 PM, NY Loves Mountains will host an evening of entertainment and action to support the September 27th Appalachia Rising March on Washington to END mountaintop removal. The event will take place at the 15th St. Meeting House (15th St. btwn 2nd and 3rd avenues, Manhattan)

Admission is pay-what-you-wish, with proceeds going to support Appalachia Rising, and to transport New Yorkers to D.C. for the September march.

The show will feature: Reverend Billy and the Church of Life After Shopping Choir; Banjo Player Morgan O'Kane; Singers Mimi Bessette and Helen Russell from Woody Guthrie's American Song; and Actor Martin Pfefferkorn as energy genius Nikola Tesla.

After the show, the audience will have an opportunity to learn about mountaintop removal and to take actions towards stopping it - by signing a divestment letter asking New York Common Retirement Fund to divest from Massey Energy, signing up for wind and solar power from Community Energy (bring your ConEd bill to do this), and signing up to attend the September 27th March in Washington.
