Environmental Council stages coal plant protest

Posted 11:41 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 1, 2009

The La Crosse chapter of the No Coal Coalition is sponsoring a rally to protest the coal power plant at UW-L. The rally is set for 3-4 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 29, next to the coal plant near Wittich Hall. The rain site is Port O' Call, Cartwright Center. "The rally is to show Gov. Jim Doyle our disdain with the coal plant on campus and our desire to have it converted away from coal," says Environmental Council member Elizabeth Ward. She expects a turnout of around 100.
