Coal Mining Our Future is sponsoring coal rallies in Frankfort and in Pikeville in June to coincide with EPA meetings to discuss mining permits in Eastern Kentucky.
The rally in Frankfort will be held on June 5, from 7- 11 p.m. at the Franklin Civic Center, with a pre rally starting at 5 p.m.
The second rally will be held on June 7 at the East Kentucky Expo center from noon to 4 p.m., and then from 7 to 11 to allow time for rally attendees to attend the EPA meeting. A pre rally will begin at 4:30 pm.
According to a release from Coal Mining Our Future, they are asking for coal miners, families, churches, senior citizens, business owners and blue collar workers to come out and show support for the coal industry.
