On December 16, we joined the #PowerToLive coalition and allies to shutdown PG&E’s headquarters in San Francisco.
Many of the protesters have mobility issues and said they were disproportionately affected by the planned power blackouts in peak fire season.
“I can’t just take a go bag and go find a safe place to be,” said activist Max Airborne. “It’s not that easy.”
“PG&E has billed the recent power outages as an inconvenience. That’s not OK,” said Jesica Lehman with the Power to Live Coalition. “This is not an inconvenience when your health and your life are at risk when the power goes off.”
