Description: Massachusetts has completed power purchase agreements with Hydro-Quebec in order to meet the state's clean energy goals; however, the state is ignoring the damage that the generation of this power causes to the environment and front-line communities. Hydro-power is not clean or green for anyone. Come learn about the true environmental and social costs of generating this electricity and the cultural genocide of Indigenous communities that is being caused by megadams and their transmission corridors.
