Occupy Philadelphia Day 34

Yesterday's Occupy Philadelphia direct action was a die-in the at the offices of PNC bank in downtown Philadelphia. The huge bank is involved in financing mountaintop destruction mining and fracking.
PNC is the #1 investor in all of America in companies that practice 'mountaintop removal' (MTR) coal mining - companies who have dynamited over 500 mountains and are responsible for thousands of toxic Clean Water Act violations across the nearby Appalachian region, one of the poorest parts of America. Meanwhile, coal from those mines is burning in Philadelphia power plants right now, giving our kids asthma while PNC invests in natural gas hydrofracking right in our own backyard! If we're not united, what has happened in Appalachia can happen here in Pennsylvania.
