SWARMING South, West, North and beyond after Appalachia Rising!

We bees just wrapped up an amazing week! We had two GIANT events to help us kick start our release tour of "The True Cost of Coal," the Common Ground Country Fair in Maine and Appalachia Rising- a mass mobilization against mountaintop removal coal mining in DC. Between the two events we shared our new work with thousands of people and have already distributed hundreds of posters!

What a powerful moment, to stand in the streets of DC with all of the friends, allies, community members and activists who are touched by the story of Mountaintop Removal. Over 100 folks were arrested demanding an end to the destruction, and that is only the beginning! Appalachia is still Rising and we are honored to be a part of this movement. Make sure to visit for photos and news stories about the event!

We will carry our part forward over the next few months. As we speak, four swarms of bees are traveling the country, keeping the momentum going for the largest tour in Beehive history! We already have 45 shows booked for October alone and more are in the works. Check out our tour pages to see if we are coming to a town near you!

And please help spread the word to friends in the area!
