Environmental protesters target Dominion Va. Power

24 Mar

William Pickett of Richmond and Erica Gray of Henrico, members of the Coalition Against Nukes and the Alliance for Progressive Values, were among the anti-Dominion protesters in Kanawha Plaza this afternoon.

RICHMOND, Va. —

More than 100 people representing a slew of environmental groups gathered in downtown Richmond this afternoon to protest the policies of Dominion Virginia Power.

The protesters braved a drenching rain in Kanawha Plaza to listen to a series of speeches from activists decrying what they said is Dominion’s overreliance on fossil fuels and nuclear power and opposition to clean-energy legislation.

They then crossed Canal Street and encircled the Dominion headquarters building while chanting slogans and waving signs.

The groups participating included Greenpeace USA, Chesapeake Climate Action Network,  Climate Action Alliance of the Valley, 350.org, Virginia Alliance for a Cleaner Environment and the Alliance for Progressive Values.
