Expropriate, Capture & Marginalize: the Energix business model from Palestine to the US
by IRmep
Energix expropriated 24 acres from a Palestinian community in the Israeli-occupied West Bank to boost its bottom line. When residents in the Israeli-occupied Golan questioned Energix electricity exports from massive wind turbines built on occupied land, Energix sued them in Israeli court. Now Energix has brought its business practices to America. But can Energix get away with expropriating $26,000 from each home within 100 feet of its utility scale energy generators in Virginia? Will county boards of supervisors accept quiet Energix payoffs of $50,000 in exchange for 35-year licenses? Will the officials and associates of the Virginia Israel Advisory Board be allowed to engage in self-dealing with Energix and use false claims to propel Energix and other corrupt VIAB deals forward? IRmep presents a short documentary about the Energix business model based on 90 Freedom of Information Act requests filed under the Commonwealth of Virginia sunshine law.
