4TH & TRADE (CIVIC PLAZA-ACROSS FROM CVS)
DOWNTOWN WINSTON-SALEMThe Triad Duke Energy Action Group is sponsoring the first #waveofactionevent in our area. It will take place near Civic Plaza. We will be passing outcoal ash info flyers to passers-by and inviting folks to attend the Duke Energy Shareholders Meeting Rally & Protest on May Day. Weather-willing we MAY even have some activist clips screening starting around 6:30! (Rain date will be the first Friday of May)We will be calling for:
#1 Duke Energy to Clean Up the Dan River and ALL coal ash lagoons in an environmentally safe manner contained from our communities. Duke Energy has paid ZERO taxes and received a net REFUND of nearly $300 MILLION DOLLARS despite making $9 billion dollars in profit since 2008; they should incur the entire cost of the cleanups, not taxpayers or ratepayers.
#2 Duke Energy to place a moratorium for residential energy cut-offs as the real wages for working people remain stagnant or falling while the costs of living and energy are soaring. Duke Energy to credid the $1.50 processing fee for all cash payment locations.
#3 Come CLEAN, Pat! Gov. McCrory MUST disclose the full extent of his connections and investments with his 30 year fobrmer employer Duke Energy (a state regulated for-profit utility MONOPOLY) and share ALL information with the Federal Gov’t pertaining to NC State Gov’t-DENR-Duke Energy connections.
