LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Environmental activists seeking an end to mountaintop removal mining were forced by Capitol Police to leave the Washington offices of Kentucky Congressman Hal Rogers and other members who represent Appalachia.
Protesters from Kentucky were requesting on Wednesday to speak with Rogers, a Republican from Somerset who is chairman of the House Appropriations Committee.
Dana Kuhnline, a volunteer with Appalachia Rising, says about 20 protesters were led away in handcuffs by Capitol Police after refusing to leave the congressional offices. The activists were also protesting at the offices of Democratic Rep. Nick Rahall of West Virginia and Republican Reps. Morgan Griffith of Virginia and Jimmy Duncan of Tennessee.
Kuhnline says the protesters are concerned about the health effects the destructive surface mining practice has on the region.
