Resistance Radio: Interview of Annette Smith

 Annette Smith of Danby, Vermont has been working to stop inappropriate development and the destruction of the earth in Vermont since 1999 when she co-founded Vermonters for a Clean Environment to stop a gas power plant and pipeline project.  Working with Vermonters throughout the state, she has successfully stopped destructive wind and solar, extractive industries, and industrial facilities from further damaging Vermont.  Wind developers tried to shut her down (up?) by filing a complaint with the Vermont Attorney General’s office that led to a criminal investigation, after which she was named Vermonter of the Year by the Burlington Free Press.  A litigious solar developer is currently attempting to gain access to her emails in a Federal court case.
