Title: Protest SDGE Powerlink "groundbreaking" this Thursday!
START DATE: Thursday December 09
TIME: 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Location Details:
Rough Acres Ranch, 2750 McCain Valley Road, Boulevard, CA 91905
Event Type: Protest
Landowners and Other Interested Parties,

It's ALL HANDS ON DECK for a protest against SDGE's phony-baloney "groundbreaking" ceremony for the proposed Sunrise Powerlink on Thursday, December 9th! Despite the fact that there are currently 3 active lawsuits against the proposed Sunrise Powerlink in courts, SDGE has scheduled a premature groundbreaking ceremony. The Protect Our Communities Foundation and partners are organizing a rally and protest against the project during the event. Media will be present and Governor Schwarzenegger is expected to attend SDGE's event. So we need a LARGE CROWD, WITH SIGNS, to show the world that the proposed powerlink is old fossil-fuel infrastructure at its worst, that the project is not acceptable to the citizens of San Diego County, and most of all that the proposed powerlink is not a done deal. PLEASE JOIN US!

When: Thursday, December 9 at 9am

Where: Rough Acres Ranch, 2750 McCain Valley Road, Boulevard, CA 91905
