Yesterday I spent over 6 hours at the Occupy Portland march and occupation, shooting some video. Here’s a short documentary about Day 1 – on the ground. Enjoy!

From Marmet, West Virginia, to Blair, West Virginia, hundreds are marching across the Appalachian region throughout this week to honor the historic labor event known as the Battle of Blair Mountain. This event designed to remember one of the largest battles in US labor history, however, is not just about history. A coalition known as Appalachia Rising is using the five-day march to call attention and protest mountaintop removal coal mining.
