"Stop Rolling Blackmail!" protest...
Union activist with sign reading “State Budget Surplus Stolen!” outside of Duke Energy power plant near Jack London Square in Oakland, CA.
Protesters are calling for:
“*The FERC Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to impose wholesale energy price controls!
*The Energy Pirates (like Duke Energy) must pay an Excess profits tax!
*If all else fails, seize the power plants via eminent domain!”
Many protesters feel that the time to seize the power plants and create Public Power (like Sacramento and Los Angeles) is now!
