UBS, a Swiss-owned wealth management firm is one of the largest funders of mountaintop removal coal extraction. April, Carmen, Nick, and Vic were arrested while delivering a message to UBS at their headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut. Their message to UBS was simple: Stop funding the destruction of Appalachia.

As a form of peaceful protest April, Carmen, Nick, and Vic refused to leave unless UBS committed to cease funding mountaintop removal. As such, they were each charged with Criminal Trespass and Breach of Peace.

See each of them explain in their own words why they chose to risk their freedom to protect Appalachian mountains and communities:
