3000 folks descended upon the Capital Coal Power Plant on March 2nd, 2009 and blockaded all the gates. Sponsored primarily by Rainforest Action Network and Greenpeace and piggybacking on the Powershift 2009 conference, participants were well trained and organized into 4 color groups assigned to a different gates. The purpose of the action was to jump start a powerful anti-coal campaign in the US capital that would then spread around the world. For those who despair about global warming, this bevy of young people should cheer you up....a little. Young people understand the urgency and severity of the crisis and are showing a willingness to act.
