Big Bets, Big Losses: Human Toll of Southern Company’s Greed

Join us Saturday, July 14 2pm (400 Flat Shoals Ave SE) at The East Atlanta Library for a few short screenings and discussion about Southern Company’s impact on our communities. Learn about the effects of the coal plant in Juliette, GA on the nearby community, and the effect nuclear plant Vogtle is having on the Shell Bluff community, and the dangers they pose to our environment.

Southern Company recently came out with a self-promoting book, Big Bets — a book that romanticizes the corporation Southern Company as the bringer of light to the South, both literally and figuratively. What they neglect to discuss is those who have opposed them, those who have suffered and died from the ill effects of their plants, and the destruction to our land, water, and air. They see fit to gamble with our resources, and our lives, and make a tidy profit on it. We say no more.
