UBS: Hands Off Appalachia Actions

On Monday, November 25th, 14 people were arrested during a day of action that included banner drops, sit-ins, and lock downs.  They were arrested while protesting UBS funding mountain-top removal, asking UBS to Divest from MTR.  To find out more about the campaign and actions, visit here.  To donate to their legal fund, please visit here.

“[At the meeting] I was ‘reassured’ [by UBS executives] that UBS’s policy on mountaintop removal was sufficient enough to protect my people.  I wholeheartedly disagree.  The reality is that their ‘policy’ is nothing more than an excuse to remove themselves from the truth that as UBS profits, my people suffer,” said Adam Hall of Glen Daniel, W.Va. who blocked the entrance to UBS’s headquarters today.”
