UPDATE: The 16 activists who pulled off 4 actions at the same plant have now left the site and been taken into custody. What an amazing job they did, let’s all hope they are safe and well and get out of jail soon.
Early this morning Greenpeace activists entered the coal-burning Asheville Power Station owned by Progress Energy (soon to be owned by Duke Energy). Activists have locked down to the coal loader and have scaled the 400 foot tall smoke stack. Banners read: Duke and Progress Energy: Stop Destroying Mountains.
