A rally and concert to build Cape Wind.

At the culminating event on the 66 mile Energy Exodus march, over 150 ralliers will call for the Town of Barnstable to withdraw its lawsuit against the Cape Wind offshore wind farm and begin negotiating in good faith with Cape Wind and federal and state agencies. They will demand that the Town stop taking money from local oil billionaire Bill Koch, who has put over $1.5 million into efforts to delay the wind farm.

Rally speakers will also highlight upcoming opportunities in New England for the marchers to continue advancing the global and regional transition to clean energy. A combination of speakers and performers will end the 66 mile march on a high and hopeful note.
