Protester Says Beshear Will Visit Eastern Kentucky Coal Fields After Sit-In

Many of the 14 protesters who spent the weekend in Governor Steve Beshear’s office left their sit-in today to join the annual “I Love Mountains Day” rally.

The sit-in began Friday as an effort to convince Governor Steve Beshear to change his stance on the surface mining technique commonly called mountaintop removal, which can leave streams clogged and polluted.
