March 1, 2009: Activists rally against coal in Massachusetts
In solidarity with the Capital Climate Action on March 2, protests were held in Massachusetts at NU's Mount Tom Station, as well as Dominion's Salem Harbor and Brayton Point plants, and NRG's Somerset plant. In Salem, about forty people rallied and speakers, such as Aviva Chomsky, were featured; the event was organized by HealthLink. In Somerset, seventy-five people rallied in a park within sight of both of the town's coal-fired power plants. Approximately sixty people gathered at the Mount Tom plant in Holyoke.
