1. Sign this petition please, then reblog & share.
From the comfort of our computers, there is little we can do. One of those things is engaging with subjects in a serious way and hopefully keeping our own minds open enough that we too can learn and change from our experience here. Another thing we can do is help people who ask for help. Friends have asked for us to support this petition and share it and now I’m asking that you join me and do the same. We can definitely boost this petition from the 1170 signatures it’s at (right now at 5AM on August 6th) to something much closer to the 2,000 signatures that the petition is seeking.
"Dorian (photo above) and 9 others are still in jail for opposing an industry that is responsible for 13,000 deaths per year from pollution alone. Please go to Rampscampaign.org and support them." - Facebook friend
Also, please sign this petition http://bit.ly/wvpetn. Here’s the text of the petition:

On Saturday, July 28, my good friend and hero Dustin Steele, along with 19 others, walked on the Hobet strip mine and shut it down in an act of nonviolent civil disobedience. For standing up to defend his community, Dustin (of Matewan) was beaten by the state police and thrown in jail, with bail set at $25,000. Dustin has been released, but the 19 others, including more victims of police violence, remain in jail. Police brutality cannot be accepted as a response to nonviolent protests, and allowing unconstitutional bail for acts of nonviolent civil disobedience is not serving justice. U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin is responsible for making sure justice is served in West Virginia. Let’s make sure he knows that we expect him to intervene to stop this unacceptable injustice. "While the state police, in conjunction with the coal companies, tried to break our spirit and our resistance by using violence to quell the fire of our movement, this attempt has failed." —Dustin Steele
