This Monday morning, July 16th, Green Mountain Power will bring the first truck load of turbine parts to the Lowell Mountains. This will be a highly visible moment and we need people to be there to greet the turbines. The Governor and the Public Service Board continue to support these projects, and we want to tell them and any wind developer with their eye on Vermont’s mountains that the problems with ridgeline wind aren’t going away, and that we won’t stand for the disrespect and devastation of more communities and ecosystems. Our rallying cry is: Lowell must be the last! Bread and Puppet Theater, members of the media, and supporters from all over the Kingdom are expected!
Bring a sign or banner and as many friends as you can!
Please carpool if possible!
Where: Route 100, 2 miles south of Lowell, across from the entrance to the project.
When: Monday, July 16th, 9:00 AM until 11:30 ish (the trucks are required to stop moving at 11:00) Come at 9:00 and stay as long as your can – if you can’t skip work, see if you can arrive an hour late, or take an early lunch break.
Rain Date: If it’s raining, the parts won’t be moved and we’ll postpone the rally until the next day. You will want to check the Mountain Occupiers blog to confirm what day the rally is happening: www.LowellMountainsNews.wordpress.com.
See you there!
