Some 22 intersections in Washington, D.C. were disrupted by climate activists on September 23, 2019.
Wonderful organized civil disobedience.
Proud of the 100 young people in St. Augustine at the Bridge of Lions on Friday, uncovered by insipid, standpatter Babbitlike reporter-distorters enslaved to Chain Gang Journalism
I especially like the boats in DC, to which the protesters chained themselves.
The technology of protest has improved since 1994, when antinuclear activists chained themselves to barrels of concrete to slow work on the Watts Bar nuclear power plant of the Tennessee Valley Authority. TVA goons pointed a 300 millimeter lens down Market Square Mall to surveil bookstore frequented by protesters, violating federal laws.TVA managers were so oblivious to public opinion that they leaked plans to file a RICO lawsuit against protesters.
This in terrorem threat inexorably led me to go to the podium at the next TVA Board meeting in Knoxville, across the street from my hotel. I denounced this out-of-control federal corporations effrontery, and its meretricious effort to chill, coerce and intimidate First Amendment rights.
Two things happened:
- TVA dropped the RICO idea, like a bad habit, after AP articles quoting me.
- A Southern California Edison Company contractor engineer at San Onofre nuclear powerplant read the article on something called the internet, called the American Bar Association in Chicago, called me and hired me to pursue his disgruntled employer, winning a landmark appellate ruling in the U.S. Department of Labor. The rest is history, San Onofre is now closed. One of our finest local judges surfed in front of the nuclear power plant when he was in law school. He and other surfers considered San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) to be scary. They were right.
