Watch implosion of the Brayton Point power plant towers

The morning of April 27, 2019 climate activists including members of Climate Action RI and the Climate Disobedience Center joined members of the community to watch and celebrate the implosion of the Brayton Point power plant towers.

Making Giant Icicle Castles

This photo was taken after several days of melting, but you get the idea.   The larger chunk on the right is what was left after knocking a five foot icicle off the edge of the roof.
