LEAKS LIES & LAWYERS 3.30.13 Parade & Rally: Such a strong, colorful and joyful parade 500 of us created together on Saturday! So many new faces and new banners, fresh music and fresh energy, united together saying NO more leaks, lies and lawyers, no more waste! YES to fresh new ways of creating our energy future!
The parade line stretched all the way from the Town Hall to the Latchis Theater, where Theater, Chris Williams led us in a rousing call and response of ‘objection! objection!’ as he talked about his two weeks at the Public Service Board hearing on the CPG witnessing Entergy’s four legal firms cry “Safety!” at every turn, and explained other Entergy legal shenanigans on the state and federal level. The Vocal Chordz led the audience in a rousing rendition of The Twelve Lies of Entergy. Sen. Jeanette White reminded us that the Vermont legislature took, and will take, action because we the citizens keep up the pressure on our elected leaders. Links to the current bills are here. Frederic Noyse played “Sonny Spinco” (Entergy stooge) in a satire closing with citizens backing lawyers off the stage. Deb Katz said we are at a tipping point, to keep up the pressure, and closed the program with a standing ovation. You can read her remarks here.
