Do what these folks did:
I’ve heard a few “important” Lowellians opine that the desecration of the Pawtucket Falls Dam is a done deal. Really? Well, for sure, if Lowellians roll over.
What if we were to mimic the grassroots resistance to the Billerica Power Plant? WHAT Billerica Power Plant, you ask? … The conspicuously absent one, my friends. ;v)
Grassroots activism can make the difference:
This development is significant, said Fitzpatrick, because it could remove the Billerica Energy Center from ISO New England’s waiting list to provide electricity to the region. ISO New England is the organization that operates the regional power grid.
You can study up on some of the finer points, here on Left in Lowell. Also, the “www..stopthebillericapowerplant.org” is still up. (a bunch of the links are effectively dead.)
Maybe you don’t care about flood victims? I do.
Maybe you don’t care about our City’s history and the social compact we have forged celebrating it? I do.
Maybe, you are just a cantankerous cuss, who gets off on sticking it to the “important” people hanging out at “Club Scratch-My-Back?” That works for me, too.
PS. I don’t think “Bladder Watchers” would be a good name. Though some older Lowellians may relate easier. Enel has an alias of “Boott-Hydro,” so “Bootty Watchers” is plausible. Too pervy?
