61] – Protest this Monday & Say NO to rate hikes on Sept. 26 from 5 to 6 PM at 110 W. Fayette St., Plaza Center across from the Sheraton Hotel. BG&E officials have already announced that they intend to make customers pay for part of the $81 million spent to clean up after Hurricane Irene through rate increases. This is beyond outrageous! Much of the suffering that the people endured was a result of BGE's own greed -- for instance, cutting back work crews prior to the storm whose job it was to maintain power lines and trees.

Now they expect the people, especially our seniors and children, to not only go jobless and hungry but to sit in the dark and freeze. We say no! Time to fight back!
