"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” - Elie Weisel

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." - Desmond Tutu

"There comes a time when neutrality and laying low become dishonorable. If you’re not in revolt, you’re in cahoots. When this period and your name are mentioned, decades hence, your grandkids will look away in shame." - David Brooks

One response to “Every environmental group in RI opposed to Invenergy power plant”

  1. Sergio526

    There’s a piece in the Providence Journal today, written by Massachusetts state chairman Rich DeNoyer, talking up the Invenergy-Raimondo fracked gas/diesel plant. The writer is either delusional, misinformed, or being paid off. He somehow thinks there’s a power shortage in New England. He makes it seem like the non-fracked gas imports into Massachusetts aren’t a conscious decision and are just some sort of oversight. And, to top it all off, he calls the opposition to the Invenergy-Raimondo plant “insane” because we desperately need the power and the plant would be the cleanest in New England.

    It’s clear that Rich DeNoyer has now shown himself to be either a moron or a paid shill. Let’s make some noise!
