Cliffside Climate Action

Mass Rally and Nonviolent Civil Disobedience To Stop Construction of Duke Energy’s Cliffside Coal Plant 
April 20, 2009 – Charlotte, NC

Join us as we converge on Duke Energy’s headquarters in downtown Charlotte to demand that Duke cancel its climate change time bomb, the new Cliffside coal plant. If built, Cliffside would emit 6 million tons of CO2 each year from coal extracted through mountaintop removal mining.

We cannot be silent as Duke poisons our air, destroys the Appalachian Mountains, and fans the flames of climate change for the sake of profit. We demand clean energy, climate justice and a livable planet. This Earth Day, join us as we take direct action to stop the construction of Cliffside and all new coal-fired power plants. The future is up to us. The time to act is now!

We will be offering trainings in nonviolent direct action, Sunday, April 19th.

Come early, learn new skills, meet new friends, and get ready for action!
