If you want to draw a crowd, contact Elena. Seriously, great job of getting the word out and sounding the alarm, Elena. This sea of people all came to protest what they feel is the destruction of their community.
People came from as far as Richmond to protest the very idea of giant power lines slashing up the Rural Crescent, people’s neighborhoods and businesses, and generally uglifying that end of Prince William County.
The power line issue is coming to a head several years early in hopes of thwarting secret business plans to supply a sub-station for an Amazon data center. Most of those opposing the power line path don’t oppose Amazon being there. They oppose having their community ruined in order to supply Amazon its power.
As is evidenced by the picture, this threat is not going to be ignored by the people of Prince William County . The Battlefield auditorium had standing room only and overflowed onto the stage and into the halls and parking lot.
