- CES Musings April 2009 by Alice Loyd
June 1, 2009
A public protest on April 20, 2009 in Charlotte, NC, called attention to the Cliffside coal plant, a symbol of the suicidal momentum now driving collective human conduct. Cliffside is well-named in this respect, since burning coal is one of the most dangerous features of the pattern that has put us at the edge of the cliff. 44 people risked arrest through civil disobedience, stepping over an orange line drawn around Duke Energy headquarters. Attendee Alice Loyd and arrestee Lib Hutchby report their reasons for participation.
