CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Environmentalists are rallying in Charleston, fed up with what they say is the state's chronic failure to protect people and the environment from pollution caused by coal mining.
Coal River Mountain Watch, the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition and other groups are planning a news conference Monday outside the federal Office of Surface Mining and Reclamation Enforcement's offices.
Organizers say they'll march from there to the governor's office.
They say decades of citizen action has failed to improve the state Department of Environmental Protection's enforcement of mining laws, especially when it comes to surface mining.
The groups are launching a new campaign called CARE, or Citizen Action for Real Enforcement.
Its goal is to hold government agencies accountable for failures to protect West Virginians.
Details will be announced at the event.
