West Virginia, USA - under its wild mountain idyll hides the "black hell": A labyrinth of dark tunnels - hard life in a coal mine. [Online until: 15 August 2019] "Wild, wonderful West Virginia” - that’s how the small state nestled in the Appalachian Mountains bills itself. This documentary reports on the daily struggle facing local coal miners hoping for help from Donald Trump; a sheriff combating the opioid epidemic that has already claimed thousands of lives; and a Cherokee environmental activist whose efforts have earned her intimidation and threats. The whistle of a locomotive at the front of an old coal train, quiet winding roads, and hardly a highway to be found - that’s still the image that many have of West Virginia today. But beneath the forest-covered mountains lies a labyrinth of tunnels just one meter high, in which miners still spend their entire working days toiling in the dark on their hands and knees. The camera team accompanies a traditional coal mining family as they go about their day. Together with the family’s two sons, Scott and Steven Lockhart, the crew ventures into the mine. Conversations with the miners reveal why people who had been lifelong Democratic Party supporters are suddenly placing their hopes for the future in Donald Trump. But the documentary also ventures beyond the coal mines to uncover the lesser-known sides of this Appalachian state - from snake-handling Pentecostal churches to the bluegrass and mountain ballads of Alan Cathead Johnston. We also speak with Sheriff Martin West, who sued the country’s three biggest pharmaceutical makers for their role in the opioid epidemic that has swept the region. And we meet another person who has decided to fight back: Maria Gunnoe, a young Cherokee activist who has dared to take on the coal barons that are ravaging the beautiful mountains of West Virginia. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Farmington Coal Mine Explosion West Virginia November 1968 MSHA
 
00:43
At approximately 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday, November 20, 1968, an explosion occurred in the Consol No.9 Mine, Mountaineer Coal Company, Division of Consolidation Coal Company, Farmington, Marion County, West Virginia. There were 99 miners in the mine when the explosion occurred, 78 of whom died as a result of the explosion. The other 21 miners survived the explosion and escaped to the surface. The mine was sealed at its surface openings on November 30, 1968. Damage to the mine in the explosion area was extensive, requiring loading of rock falls, replacement of ventilation and transportation facilities, and in some cases new mine entries to bypass extensively caved areas. Investigative activities were continued, in cooperation with the Company, State, and United Mine Workers of America (UMW A) organizations, as mine areas were recovered. Between 1969 and 1978, the bodies of 59 victims were recovered and brought to the surface. Recovery operations ceased and all entrances to the mine were permanently sealed in November 1978, leaving 19 victims buried in the mine and leaving some areas of the mine unexplored. Lessons learned during early evaluation of this disaster were incorporated into the Federal Coal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1969. The Federal Coal Mine Health and Safety Act of 1969, generally referred to as the Coal Act, was more comprehensive and more stringent than any previous Federal legislation governing the mining industry. The Coal Act included surface as well as underground coal mines within its scope, required two annual inspections of every surface coal mine and four at every underground coal mine, and dramatically increased federal enforcement powers in coal mines. The Coal Act also required monetary penalties for all violations, and established criminal penalties for knowing and willful violations. The safety standards for all coal mines were strengthened, and health standards were adopted. The Coal Act included specific procedures for the development of improved mandatory health and safety standards, and provided compensation for miners who were totally and permanently disabled by the progressive respiratory disease caused by the inhalation of fine coal dust pneumoconiosis or "black lung". For more on the history of coal mine safety, go to http://www.msha.gov/AboutMSHA.HTM . This was clipped from the 2004 video, We Are ... MSHA, by the Mine Safety and Health Administration and available at the MSHA website and the Internet Archive.

Coal Mining: The Disasters and the History of Mine Safety and Health Legislation
 
11:22
A public domain video A film about the history of underground coal mining throughout the years. The disasters and the health regulations. -The Monongah Mining Disaster was the worst mining accident in American history; 362 men and young boys were killed in an underground explosion on December 6, 1907 in Monongah, West Virginia. -Following a decade in which the number of coal mining fatalities exceeded 2,000 annually, Congress established the Bureau Of Mines in 1910 as a new agency in the Department of the Interior. The Bureau was to investigate accidents, advise industry, conduct production and safety research, and teach courses in accident prevention, first aid, and mine rescue. However, Congress did not empower the federal inspectors to enter and inspect mines until 1941, and did not authorize a code of federal regulations for mine safety until 1947. The Federal Coal Mine Health and Safety Acts of 1969 and 1977 set greater safety standards for the industry. Where annual mining deaths had numbered more than 1,000 a year in the early part of the 20th century, they decreased to an average of about 500 in the late 1950s.

Coal Rush (FULL DOCUMENTARY)
 
01:24:35
Filmed over 5 years in the coalfields of West Virginia, COAL RUSH follows the relentless battle for justice of a rural Appalachian community against a major coal company accused of polluting their drinking water. Husband-and-wife team of independent filmmakers LORENA LUCIANO and FILIPPO PISCOPO shine a spotlight on one of the worst (yet least publicized) industrial contamination disasters in the United States -- billions of gallons of coal waste dumped in the waterways and dwarfing the BP Gulf oil spill. Granted exclusive access by the legal team, and capturing with eloquent cinema verite'-style the local community's everyday life, the directors expose a serious case of environmental wrongdoing from all angles – including the coal company's standpoint -­ while bringing an important story of human suffering into focus. COAL RUSH offers an unprecedented look at some of the most pressing social and environmental issues in America today – concerns over toxins in US tap water, rural poverty, corporate malfeasance, and government failings – through the universally-appealing story of a highly controversial legal saga.

Coal Mining Documentary - The Most Dangerous Job On Earth - Classic History
 
42:27
Coal Mining Documentary - The Most Dangerous Job On Earth - Classic History Coal mining is the process of extracting coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United Kingdom and South Africa a coal mine and its structures are a colliery, a coal mine a pit, and the above-ground structures the pit head. In Australia, "colliery" generally refers to an underground coal mine. In the United States "colliery" has been used to describe a coal mine operation but nowadays the word is not commonly used. Coal mining has had many developments over the recent years, from the early days of men tunnelling, digging and manually extracting the coal on carts, to large open cut and long wall mines. Mining at this scale requires the use of draglines, trucks, conveyors, hydraulic jacks and shearers. Small-scale mining of surface deposits dates back thousands of years. For example, in Roman Britain, the Romans were exploiting most of the major coalfields by the late 2nd century AD. Read More: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal_mining

Sago Mine Disaster
 
43:34
Thirteen men sat in the best barricade they could build, enduring...hoping. They had used their single hour of oxygen from the only Self Contained Self Rescuer issued to them by the company. Their families waited outside living through one of the most difficult times of their lives, praying to see their loved ones once again. As time wore on, we would learn the ultimate fate of those men, those husbands, those fathers, those grandfathers, brothers, uncles, nephews. One was alive, barely holding on…the others had perished in the thick poisoned air of the mine. The miners of Sago were like so many of us. They took one of the few jobs available to them, jobs that would allow them to live in the places they had long called home, jobs that would pay enough to support their families. If only the company had given them more than one SCSR—if only there had been a law—but we know how much power money holds over the hearts of men. It would be the suffering and tragic loss of life of those 12 brave souls—the pain of constant loss felt by their families—that would finally see to it that every coal miner in the United States would never face the same crisis. Millions of Americans became outraged at the events that played out on their televisions, and the ensuing public outcry would accomplish a feat that has seldom been accomplished in the history of US coal mining—the power of coal industry lobbyists was outweighed by the voice of the public in the halls of government. Laws were passed and now additional SCSRs must be purchased by coal companies, underground safe havens must be built and supply miners with three day of oxygen, food, and water. Each time my crew passed a safe haven and SCSR stash on our way to the section, I would think of those men, I would think of their final hours. I would pay my respects to them in my own way and wish that the corruption of the coalfields had not taken their lives. I hope that other miners do the same and remember the day the miners of Sago perished and the hearts of their families were forever broken. May you all rest in peace. God Bless.

The Coal Vote: Showdown in West Virginia's Midterm Elections
 
14:42
Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News This year's midterm elections are projected to be the most expensive in American history. One of the most notable races, where outside interests are pouring in millions of dollars, is in West Virginia's third district — and the campaign is centered on one thing: coal. The coal industry has dominated West Virginia for the past 150 years, exerting great influence over its economy and politics. Obama’s push to drastically reduce carbon emissions to combat climate change has convinced many West Virginians that the federal government is waging a “war on coal” and, in turn, on West Virginia, as mines close and jobs are cut. The backlash has placed 19-term Democratic incumbent Nick Rahall under fire for his perceived affiliation with Obama. The Koch brothers and other out-of-state energy interests have seized this opportunity to oust Rahall, leading Democratic State Senator Evan Jenkins to switch parties and run as a Republican. VICE News traveled to West Virginia's third district to cover the race between the two candidates as they fight to prove who will be coal's greatest champion, and spoke with locals about coal's outsized importance in the region.

Out Of My Mind - story from 1920's coal mine wars in West Virginia
 
03:54
OUT OF MY MIND is available for download from CD Baby, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, among others. https://www.cdbaby.com/cd/dancunningham4 The song was recognized in six different songwrtiting competitions - OUT OF MY MIND is a tragic tale from the Appalachian coal-fields. The story told in this song is fictional, but the background is drawn from the history of coal mining in West Virginia around 1920. When the miners attempted to unionize, the mining company would hire companies like the Baldwin-Felts Detective Agency to provide security. Among other duties, these "hired guns" would evict miners (and their families) from company housing when they no longer worked for the company. A miner might lose his job for involvement union organizing, and of course, a dead man was no longer an employee. In this song, the narrator tries to stop his mother's eviction and the confrontation ends in violence. “The Baldwin-Felts came calling The week my daddy died Put my momma on the street I tried my best to help her but I killed a man instead” (CONCERNING TRAINS and this song) It is a familiar sight deep in the Appalachians, particularly in years past. In those narrow valleys of the coal fields, there may be a road, a creek or river, and a railroad track, with scant room for much else on that narrow ribbon of "flat" land between the mountains. The sound of the train winding thru the valley is part of the environment. It is the background music for every activity in those small communities. Of, course we end the song with some coal train imagery. “I set out on the rails tonight I have to get away the wheels, they click, the lonely whistle blows A snake of coal cars follows me , black as my wicked deed” Out Of My Mind, received attention from six different songwriting competitions and John Francis (2006 ASCAP Sammy Cahn Lyricist of the Year) said, "OUT OF MY MIND is a very cool, dark, murder ballad. Artful. Your voice is very compelling". -Regional finalist 2010  New Song/Mountain Stage contest  -Story Song finalist 2010  Independent Music Awards  -Semi-Finalist  Acoustic Roundtable 2011 Worldwide Search  -Semi-Finalist 2011  SONG OF THE YEAR contest  -2012 East Coast Songwriters  Honorable Mention Americana/Folk -2017 Just Plain Folks Music Awards  Americana nomination You can search the internet for more information West Virginia coal wars and the Baldwin Felts Detective Agency.

Coal Mining Song-Blood By The Ton 2010
 
03:03
Blood by The Ton by Stephen Davis written about a mine disaster in Eccles WV in the early 1900's. The photos in this video are all original. They are from our family who have all been touched by Coal mining. With the disaster last week it appears not much has changed over time. The miners are sacrificed for money as the big companies continue to avoid regulations and fines. They bury towns in sludge and lethal gas as they destroy the earth and people who need it. This song is about such a disaster which happened in the early 1900's. The images are of a mining settlement , company store and the area near the mine where people lived under control of the company. They were paid in script and always ended up owing money at the end of the month. I will begin on a book soon about the life I remember as a child growing up in West Virginia. It will be tied to a series of songs about the experiences. You will be amazed at how much people stayed together in spirit through the best and the worst of times.

Two New Coal Mines to Be Built in West Virginia and Virginia

According to coal developers, a $90 million investment will open two new mines in West Virginia and Virginia at some point in 2017. On Tuesday, Kentucky-based Ramaco Development announced that it has completed a $90 million deal with two private equity firms to build the mines. In a statement, Ramaco said the mines will extract metallurgical coal, the type used for steel production. The company's CEO Randall Atkins told The AP following the announcement that the mines will create over 400 jobs in regions that have seen unemployment numbers recently rise. http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/386c25518f464186bf7a2ac026580ce7/Article_2016-09-06-US--New%20Coal%20Mines/id-11cab5324e9f4622bf02ec88ec6222cb http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Business using http://wochit.com

The Mine Wars | PBS America
 
03:29
Premieres 9pm, Wednesday 29 June on Freesat 156 | Sky 534 | Virgin Media 276 Following its European premiere at the Sheffield Doc Fest, this documentary recalls the struggle for trade union recognition by mine workers in West Virginia, a battle that lasted two decades. At the beginning of the 20th century, coal was the engine of American industrial progress. The coal industry employed over 700,000 men, yet few Americans gave much thought to the price paid by those whose working days were spent underground. With entire communities owned by the mining companies, conditions and pay were strictly controlled. The stage was set for conflict, and the spark that ignited the flame arrived in 1901 in the shape of Mary Harris "Mother" Jones, an outspoken labour organiser and activist. West Virginian miners went on strike in 1902, with the employees demanding shorter workdays, higher wages and recognition of the union. It was to be the first of a series of industrial disputes that frequently erupted into violence, with successive state governors being forced to declare martial law as the coal companies engaged paramilitary forces to combat the strikers, who themselves were heavily armed. Superior force was eventually to prevail, however, and in the early 1920s the strikes eventually petered out. It would not be until 1933 that Congress passed legislation guaranteeing the workers' right to unionise.
