Reverand Billy arrested during Chase mountaintop removal protest

Sorry guys, I just haven't had the time to do any postings. I am completely backlogged with things I want to post. i promise to post them this week. Anyways, here a quick video of Reverend Billy being arrested for putting dirt in Chase's ATM lobby. The protest is over funding of mountaintop mining which destroys the environment by shaving off the tops of hills and filling the bottom with the debris. it essentially flattens terrain and destroys the existence of streams below.

Reverand Billy (his organization being The Church of Life After Shopping), whose real name is Bill Talen, joined forces with Morgan Spurlock (remember Super Size Me)to make the movie Would Jesus Buy?
