'Blood on the Mountain' focuses on the environmental and economic injustice and corporate control in West Virginia and its rippling effect on all American workers. This film will tell the story of a hard-working people who have historically had limited choices and have never benefited fairly from the rich natural resources of their land. The failure to diversify the economy has insured control by outside, unrestricted corporations with the support of politicians kept in their positions by these very same companies.Written by
8/23/17. With the push by this current administration to provide jobs for coal miners, maybe they should take some time to watch this and learn about the problems coal miners are facing. It is not a glamorous job, and for sure a dangerous job that endanger the health of those who does this for a living. These miners need to be retrained to do something else. Coal use destroys the environment, polluting the air. Even when they know their health problems are related to what they do for a living, they are resistant to change. Things have to change, and continued mining is not the solution for providing a livelihood for coal miners. There are cleaner energy alternatives that should be explored as a way to transition these workers into jobs that will protect the environment and the health of the workers.
