The folks at Coal River Mountain Watch have announced today that they will:
… Observe a moment of silence at noon, Eastern Daylight Time on Saturday, August 27, 2011 to commemorate the birth and brilliant life of Julia “Judy” Bonds. They are calling on all activists to join this remembrance. Judy, who died in January of this year, would have been 59 years old Saturday. Judy’s fierce activism and determination crystallized the movement to end mountaintop removal coal extraction in Appalachia. This moment of silence will be observed annually.
