MARMET, WEST VIRGINIA — As reported in an earlier post, the Blair Mountain marchers faced some of their first – albeit small – groups of counter protesters in Marmet, West Virginia on Monday. Some counter protesters stood on the sidewalk holding signs that read things like, “Coal keeps the lights on.” Others remained empty handed, watching the marchers pass in front of small businesses along Marmet’s main route.  A few counter protesters and observers were asked their opinions on what they were seeing. This is some of the opposition’s reactions. [Running time: 01:25]
