Marchers then headed down MacCorkle Avenue towards 94 with banners carrying reading “Save Blair Mountain” “Appalachia Deserves a Clean Local Economy” and more. Marchers then moved onto the side of the road down 94 to the base of Lens Creek Mountain.

I have been siting here trying to think of the right words to use. Yesterday I wrote a draft, but it barely began to encompass my experience. I have so many notes, and ideas scrawled in the margins of my Power Shift hand outs. But trying to put it all together has been kinda daunting.

Instead I thought I would share some pictures from Power Shift, and a little video with you all. If you have cool pictures, video, or recordings you would like me to include please email them to: ljubica@energyjustice.net

At least in theory :) So...four brave young men and myself took the training in preparation for one of the largest green conferences in our nation called POWER SHIFT! Here are some photos we took while attending the training in  DC from April 2-4. Hope ya diggs 'em.
