Breaking news: Second tree-sitter ends MTR protest

August 31, 2009 by Ken Ward Jr.

This just in from Climate Ground Zero:

The State Police have just confirmed that Laura Steepleton descended the tree and has been arrested.

So apparently, both tree sitters have come down out of those tulip poplar trees in Raleigh county, ending a week-long protest they say shut down blasting at a Massey Energy mountaintop removal mine.

More details later … in tomorrow’s Gazette.
