Southern Company Premiere Protest Draws Crowds Asking Questions

228 As Southern Company's centennial has come around, the corporation has celebrated with a documentary, Big Bets, patting themselves on the backs for making "big bets" that were risky, but ultimately brought the light of progress to the South.  In response to this propaganda, organizers from several groups came together to shed some ight on the truth about the Company and what its doing.  Monday's protest against Southern Company brought out around 50 people from Occupy Atlanta, environmental, and anti-nuclear groups alike.  Despite suffering a last minute time change and a crossover with solidarity protest with prison hunger strikers, energy was up and the public responded positively to the message. 

"Why are y'all out here?"  The response: to protest Southern Company's betting their ratepayers money on dangerous new coal and nuclear power, all while spending tens of millions lobbying against environmental and health laws.

APPEAL

 

Blue Ribbon Commission on America's Nuclear Future has hearing in Columbus

“WAND is concerned that the Commission’s visit to the area may signal DOE [Department of Energy] interest in the creation of energy parks designed in part for the reprocessing and storage of nuclear waste, at the Savannah River Site, a U.S. nuclear weapons complex near Aiken, South Carolina, just across the river from Augusta.  (...) Such actions could further establish the Southeast as a more permanent nuclear dumping ground, thus intensifying the environmental, health and safety burdens already suffered by those living in the shadow of nuclear weapons facilities like SRS in South Carolina and commercial nuclear power reactors, like the nearby Plant Vogtle, in Georgia.”
