More from the March | Voice of Opposition: Mike Brown, former Blair resident and strip miner


While there were a lot of residents along the 50-mile route from Marmet to Blair who came out to show their support for the Marchers, there were also several residents who were in opposition to what the Marchers stood for. One such man, Mike Brown, was at this past Saturday’s rally. He was there, he said, to show his support for his fellow strip miners. In an interview, Mike shared how the coal mining industry – strip mining included – has benefited his family. He also shared why the town of Blair (and subsequently, Blair Mountain) remains important to him – even if he happens to favor strip mining the site.
