Watershed Based Powerline Protest

Watershed Based Powerline Protest

Protestors coordinated by the activist group Save Our Lands (SOUL) let their opinions be heard in Duluth at a May 8th Minnesota Power (now named “Allette”) shareholders’ meeting. Protestors handed out leaflets where the meeting was held. According to SOUL the rally was in support of “alternative energies and against the dinosaur technology of the proposed 250-mile-long Duluth to Weston 345 kv bulk transfer transmission line.” The proposed line would cut through vast tracks of the southern Lake Superior Watershed.
