Rally to Shut Down Brayton Point

SUNDAY, JULY 28 | SOMERSET, MA


GENERAL INFO: http://summerheatbraytonpoint.org/

On July 28th, citizens from all over New England will come together
for a mass mobilization at the Brayton Point power plant. Brayton
Point is the largest coal-fired power plant from Massachusetts to
Maine. We will call for Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick to close
the plant and ask him to ensure a just transition for workers and host
communities from the West Virginian mines to Somerset. The
mobilization will include an optional non-violent civil disobedience
component.
