Appalachia Rising

Hundreds of people opposed to mountaintop removal mining in Appalachia march past the Environmental Protection Agency in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 27, in an effort to persuade government officials to ban the technique.

About 100 marchers were arrested outside the White House at the end of the march.
