Anti-Coal Protest At The Mt. Tom Power Plant

As a tune-up to the March 2, 2009 Capitol Climate Action in Washington D.C., The Enviro Show & Citizens vs. Coal
staged a protest at the Mt. Tom Power Plant on Sunday March 1st 2009.

According to a press release from organizer Peter Vickery, "the coal burning Mt. Tom power station generates more than one billion tons of CO2 anually... which is reason enough to stage a peaceful protest at the GDF Suez-owned plant".

The release notes,"the lead organizer of the Massachusetts protest is the Massachusetts Coalition for Healthy Communities (MCHC) and the keynote speaker is the Rev.Margaret Bullitt-Jonas." If all goes as planned, The Enviro Show will roll out from there and head south to our nation's capitol.
