The marchers passed the Walker CAT building on todays route.
The March received its first physical harassment today. At 2pm a driver threw a cup of water on Micklem, who says he took it in stride. The march has attracted both support and derision from passerbys. Marchers who so choose still plan to commit an act of non-violent civil disobedience to protest mountaintop removal at the conclusion of the march at Mammoth Coal Company on Monday afternoon.
