No to Clearance for a Destructive Coal Power Plant in Batangas City! No to Coal, Dirty, Harmful Energy! Shift to Renewable Energy Now!
The Freedom from Debt Coalition (FDC) strongly urges the City Council of Batangas to deny the application for local clearance that will commence the construction of a new coal-fired power plant in Batangas City.
In particular, FDC asks Mr. Gerry Dela Roca, the Chairperson of the Land Use Committee, to lead the vote against the application for the construction of two boiler units of the new coal plant at 300MW each. The said project was the main target of the 10,000-strong mobilization against the coal energy and plants held last May 4 in Batangas City and as part of the global campaign to Break Free from Fossil Fuels.
