(AP) Some 100 miners are occupying a coal mine on Sardinia island to press for state funds for a clean energy project they say will provide new jobs.


Miners at the Carbosulcis mine told Sky TG24 TV on Monday that they want the government and Parliament to quickly approve funding for a project to capture and store underground carbon dioxide that otherwise would add to polluting greenhouse gases.


Local daily L'Unione Sarda says a parliamentary deputy has joined the protest, which began Sunday night 373 meters (1,230 feet) underground.


The miners say they see a future in clean energy projects.
