Southeast Climate Converge
				
DOCUMENT INFO
Description: On August 11, the last day of the convergence, many participants joined an unpermitted march in Richmond that visited the offices of several "climate criminals," carrying banners reading "Social Change, not Climate Change" and "No Nukes, No Coal, No Kidding!" At Dominion Virginia's headquarters, activists chanting "No Nukes, No Coal, We won't stop until you do!" attempted to occupy the corporate plaza but were repelled by police on horseback. One horse bucked the cop off its back, an action perceived by marchers as a show of inter-species solidarity.Three people were arrested April 15 for impeding traffic during a brief blockade of Tredegar Street in front of Dominion's Richmond office. Then on June 30, a dozen were arrested after a two-hour, reinforced hands-inconcrete-barrel blockade there. The company spokesman told the press, "It did affect the operability at Tredegar... It had a significant effect." Ten took a plea bargain a week before the Climate Convergence got underway, and were ordered to serve the community for 200 or more hours each. Laura Van Dohlen and Lara Mack declined the plea bargain. They were scheduled to stand trial September 18."I asked him to please get out of my way, to step aside, and he said he wasn't in my way," [Peter Rickards] told a local newspaper. "So I turned sideways and slid past him. The doorway is probably three feet across and Doug's about two-and-a-half feet across so our bellies touched when I went by."
