Wow. I just did some research on this Massey Power.
Their mines in WV have been the targets of protests about 15 times in the last year and several months leading up to this. A number of arrests.
Less than 2 months ago a group of activists attempted to make a citizens arrest on Blankenship and Blanchard.
Maybe a Cover Opp
It also looks like Massey Energy at WVA has been the number one targeted coal company in the US by radical environmentalist. And part of a larger
international effort agaist coal. Even going after stock holders as Massey stock was very good....untill a few days ago.
Also, while Massey has had some contact with groups, as of Obamas taking office they have been dogged by these groups. Also this event happened just a
few days after a large EPA ruling.
EPA end of last week
Tea Party has nothing on these folks in the area of direct action.
