Protest Against The Repeal Of The Clean Power Plan

Polluting Pruitt has moved to repeal the Clean Power Plan, and this Wednesday in San Francisco the EPA is holding the only hearing on theWest Coast to take public input about this disastrous move.

To send a clear message to Trump’s EPA, the Center for Biological Diversity will hold a protest at the San Francisco public library, the location of the EPA hearing. For the demonstration, we’ll stage a funeral highlighting the premature deaths and disaster for our planet if the Clean Power Plan is repealed. And we’ll have signs, banners, and chants to ensure our voices are heard loud and clear.

Come join us at the main entrance of the San Francisco public library (100 Larkin Street) at 7:30am. Our plan is to start at 8am sharp, right before the hearing begins. People are encouraged to dress in black for the staged funeral.

MORE BACKGROUND:

Power plants are the nation’s largest stationary source of planet-warming pollution. They also fill the air with other harmful pollutants that sicken and kill people. According to the EPA’s own analysis, the Clean Power Plan would prevent up to 4,500 premature deaths per year by 2030.

The Clean Power Plan would slash the dirty power plant pollution that chokes our communities and fuels catastrophic climate change. Pruitt’s reckless plan to kill it is the biggest industry giveaway proposed by the Trump Administration so far.

If you’d like to make public comment at the hearing, there are still some slots available. To speak, you’ll need to register as a walk-in speaker before the protest begins.
