This is it. It is now or never. Your town, your neighbors, our children and future generations need you. This is a call to action!
The next few weeks will determine the fate of our waterfront for generations to come. Will we be doomed to 50 more years of a blighting our harbor and spewing toxins over our community? Or will we reclaim and restore our waterfront into something we can all be proud of? It is up to us.
NoPowerPlant.com is gearing up to gather signatures to get the Power Plant Phase Out initiative on the ballot. They will need to gather 9,500 signatures before the end of September, so it is time for all hands on deck!
If you want to join your neighbors, rid our waterfront of the blighting, polluting power plant, and be part of writing a new chapter in South Bay history, stand up and volunteer to gather petition signatures. You must be “eligible to register to vote in California” to help gather signatures. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer. Your fellow residents, our children, and generations to come need you—and, they need you now.
Volunteer and urge your family and friends to volunteer. Join the fight to take back our waterfront from a company in Virginia. They don’t live here. They don’t really care about our community. If they did, they would have fixed their steam vent problem years ago. If they cared about the communities their power plants pollute, they would not run any coal fired power plants anywhere. AES does what they must to get the permits and contracts to produce power. They get environmental when regulations force them or profits drive them to it. Their local president doesn’t live here. Their project manager doesn’t live here. They don’t have to look at the plant every day. They don’t have to breath their own pollution. They don’t raise their kids here.
We do. It is our town, not theirs. We must not sit by and allow them to bulldoze over us to build a power plant we don’t want and that we don’t need.
This is American democracy at its best, in the tradition of our founding fathers. Don’t let a company in Virginia bully us and dictate what happens to our waterfront. If we cower in fear and complacency, we get the pollution and blight, while they take their profits to Virginia.
Stand up and fight for our waterfront side-by-side with your neighbors! Join the fight to take back our waterfront!
