11 opponents of power plants begin hunger strikeAssociated Press
DENTON - Eleven environmental opponents of 16 coal-fired power plants proposed in Texas began a hunger strike Wednesday scheduled to last until Election Day on Nov. 7.

The fasting began nearly a year after Gov. Rick Perry signed an executive order Oct. 27, 2005, to speed up the permitting process for the plants.

The hunger strike aims to make state leaders consider cleaner technologies such as wind power and other renewable energies, said Karen Hadden, 49, who organized the protest.

Hadden said Perry's order made Texans think there is an energy crisis that requires the quick development of new plants when none really exists.
