Bow coal plant action

September 28, 2019

We can’t let the enormity of the climate crisis prevent us from doing what needs to be done. Fracked gas projects are still being built, and in New England, we are still burning coal – the dirtiest fossil fuel of all. We can stop this. This fall, a broad coalition is collaborating in nonviolent civil disobedience against coal and gas.

We have the power to shut down the last big coal plant in New England. A regional coalition is gearing up to shut down the Merrimack Generating Station in Bow, New Hampshire. This six-plus month campaign, timed with the New Hampshire presidential primary for maximum political punch, will kick off this August and build towards mass action at the end of September. 

As part of the Global Climate Strike and Week of Actions in September, we’ll be descending on the Merrimack Generating Station with dozens of organizations and grassroots groups. Together we will shut the plant down, and let the ripples spread across the region. To achieve this, we need everyone. Please save the date of September 28th! Learn more and pledge to resist: https://www.nocoalnogas.org/

After September, we will continue with actions at the plant until it is closed for good. Our hope is that ending coal in New England will help others see the day without fossil fuels beyond the horizon. We can’t wait to work on this, and we hope you’ll join us.
