A scathing new report commissioned by then West Virginia Governor Joe Manchin points the finger squarely at Massey Energy for the deaths of 29 miners from a massive explosion at the Upper Big Branch mine in West Virginia last April. The report indicates that lax safety standards and a culture of greed rampant throughout the company created a chain of events that caused the disaster.
Massey must held responsible for its lethal recklessness.
Companies like Massey can do business only because “we the people” grant them a corporate charter. Massey Energy’s is legally based in Delaware, giving state Attorney General Beau Biden the power to revoke Massey’s right to do business.
Send a message that we will not allow Big Coal do conduct business-as-usual. Ask Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden to revoke Massey’s charter today.
