A group called "Occupy UBS Appalachia!" that was among the Earth Day folks at ETSU on Saturday issued an invitation, a call for nonviolent direct action to stop the funding of mountaintop removal.
Their handout reads as follows: "Hands off Appalachia!" We are asking UBS to amend its official policy and stop funding and supporting Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining."
From their Facebook page:
"A regional action against the UBS offices located in Southern Appalachia to demand UBS change it's official policy and stop funding Mountaintop Removal Coal mining.
Why? UBS, a Swiss-owned wealth management services company, funds and provides investment support and advi...sory services for ALL companies engaged in mountaintop removal coal mining. Those companies supported by UBS are: Arch Coal Inc, Alpha Natural Resources, Patriot Coal and James River Coal Company."
