One tree-sitter to descend after week defending people from blasting
PETTRY BOTTOM, W.Va. - After six full days in an 80-foot-tall poplar tree, Nick Stocks will voluntarily come down at 10:00 a.m. today. Since Tuesday morning, Stocks has been living on a platform 30 feet from Massey Energy's Edwight Surface Mine, preventing further blasting over the community of Pettry Bottom. Stocks will turn himself immediately over to the State Police. Fellow tree sitter Laura Steepleton remains in a neighboring tree with no immediate plans to come down.
We are seeking donations of sleeping bags; sleeping pads; rain gear; headlamps, flashlights & batteries; hand held radios and more.
