More than 200 citizens gathered in Corpus Christi this Valentine’s Day to march in protest of the proposed Las Brisas Power Plant.
Public Citizen staffers were on hand to lend their support to the display, but this march was all local, baby. Groups as varied as the Clean Economy Coalition of the Coastal Bend, Nueces County Medical Society, American Federation of Teachers, North Beach Tenants Association, and student organizations from Texas A&M University Corpus Chrisi sponsored and participated in this event.
Check out Corpus Christi Channel 6′s news coverage of the event for stunning footage of and interviews from local opponents.
The preliminary hearing on Las Brisas’ air permit will be held tomorrow at ten at 1201 Leopard Street.
