Protesters Dump Coal at Bank of America

About 30 people – including Beth Henry who spoke about the impact of coal on the environment –  and members of Occupy Charlotte, staged a “bad air day” to protest Bank of America’s financing of the coal industry.  They dumped 500 pounds of coal and then cleaned it up with a “Citizen Clean-Up Crew”.

Bank of America, a member of ALEC, is one of the largest funders of the coal industry–which includes Charlotte based Duke Energy.
