protest
Colorado's Air Quality Control Commission held a hearing at Centennial Hall to discuss the Martin Drake Power Plant's operating permit. Although a decision won't be made for months, some that were opposed to the coal burning plant came to protest before the meeting and attend the meeting to voice their concerns. Anna McDevitt (right), an organizing representative for the Sierra Club, rallies those opposed to the power plant before the meeting.
