The People’s Struggle, Support the ACHE Act, Donate to end Mountaintop Removal

Appalachian Secret

This Is The Appalachian Community Health Emergency Campaign

ACHE Fact Sheet 2012 sml The Appalachian Communities Health Emergency Act is the first law ever proposed that would end the human rights/ human health disaster that is Mountaintop Removal in Appalachia.
The New York Times called Mountaintop Removal "Appalachia's Agony." It's no wonder: communities near Mountaintop Removal sites suffer shockingly disproportionate levels of cancer, heart disease, pulmonary disease, birth defects and other physical and mental illnesses.
More than four thousand people die in West Virginia mining communities every year. Science calls these "excess deaths." We call them Husband, Wife, Grampa, Granma, Brother, Sister, Son, Daughter, Aunt, Uncle, Cousin.
Mountaintop Removal's horrors MUST end, and you have a vital role to play in ending it. Get your member of Congress to sign on to the A.C.H.E. Act now.
