Background
In February, the Seminole Tribe of Florida announced a 68 mile march from the Big Cypress Reservation to the Hendry County Courthouse in response to the County’s rezoning of land on the border of Big Cypress. The march was being planned to coincide with an April 21 court date, but the court date has now been changed to July 14 and the march postponed.

 

A coalition of groups including the Seminole Tribe, the Independent Seminole Nation, Sierra Club, Everglades Earth First!, Save Our Creeks, and others have joined together to support the Tribe’s lawsuit against rezoning the land and to build a groundswell of grassroots opposition to this power plant.Simultaneously, there is a movement growing to oppose the new FPL gas pipeline which would cross Florida from north to south and is needed to fuel such a massive plant.

 
Here’s a bit about the re-framing of Earth Day:

And some background with right-wing slant from Fox News.. But still interesting to hear it from another angle:

We hope you will join this movement to bring down FPL’s energy empire!
