Join East Bay Democratic Socialists of America to kick off a campaign to take public control of PG&E and win a Green New Deal.
The profit-driven management of Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), our region’s investor-owned energy utility, has created severe disasters for the health and safety of California’s working class. Now PG&E wants to raise electricity rates to pay for all the liability it’s facing in lawsuits over its negligence.
The California Public Utilities Commission is considering a range of measures to address the disaster that is PG&E — including the suggestion that the state take over PG&E and provide electricity as a public service.
This event will launch a campaign to demand:
- No bail-out of PG&E
- Public and worker control of PG&E
- A Green New Deal
