WHAT: Actions at the EPA and across the country calling for an end to mountaintop removal
WHEN: Friday, Oct. 30

And tomorrow Obama’s EPA will be releasing a list to be placed into a final review so that some amount of these permits can go forward, be rubber stamped by the Army Corp. of Engineers and go onto destroy mountains and devastate communities.
