Protestors Celebrate 7 Months of Sit-In

After staging a sit-in for about seven months at Gov. Steve Beshear’s office to protest mountaintop removal, some 20 people celebrated at Frankfort's Kentucky Coffeetree Café Thursday night. Organizers also brainstormed ideas on how to keep the protest of the controversial mining technique moving forward, said Andy McDonald, a participant and supporter of the sit-ins. The protesters are also looking at other forms of civil disobedience besides a sit-in.
