The University of Kentucky (UK) men’s basketball game will feature a demonstration on Friday night by a student environmentalist group upset about a coal industry tax used to fund renovations in the Rupp Arena.
According to local affiliate Fox 19, the protest is part of a weeklong series of demonstrations from November 4-11 around the state by the Kentucky Student Environmental Coalition (KSEC) to raise awareness to environmental issues.
KSEC spokesperson Cara Cooper told Campus Reform by email on Thursday that the group is protesting the use of coal severance taxes for arena renovations.
“The cause of the protest is to raise awareness around coal severance tax money being used by the state for renovations to the Rupp Arena rather than that money going to communities impacted by coal mining,” she wrote.
According to Kentucky.com, the coal severance tax is collected from coal companies based in Kentucky and is generally used to help revitalize the economy in the mining counties.
Kentucky.com also reports that Governor Beshear allocated $2.5 million from coal severance tax funds in the 2012 budget to fund the renovation of the Rupp Arena, which is not located in a mining district.
Cooper told Campus Reform her group has started a petition to raise awareness about the use of the coal severance tax funds.
“We are collecting petitions to show that Kentuckians want the coal severance tax money to go to the impacted communities rather than used for frivolous projects, like Rupp Arena renovations,” she added.
The group’s petition has been posted on moveon.org, and currently has eight signatures out of a goal of fifty.
The UK athletic department did not return a call for comment from Campus Reform in time for publication.

Katherine Ann Power, a former left-wing radical and ex-fugitive involved in a 1970’s bank heist which left a Boston police officer dead, spoke at Oregon State University last Thursday.
The speech, titled “Surrender: Guerilla to Grandmother,” was hosted by the school’s Peace Studies program and featured Power discussing life on the run as detailed in her new book “Surrender,” the Daily Caller reports.
According to a description on OSU’s website, Power was the driver in a bank heist in 1970 with other radicals while a student at Brandeis University.

While on the run, Power moved to Oregon and adopted the name Alice Metzinger, married, and had a son.

Illegal immigrant students burned their high school diplomas outside Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne’s office in Phoenix on Tuesday, claiming a recent lawsuit preventing in-state tuition for illegal aliens makes their diplomas worthless.

Horne filed a lawsuit this June against the Maricopa County Community College District in order to prevent them from providing in-state tuition to illegal immigrants.
