Police arrested more than 40 protesters today at Duke Energy’s Charlotte headquarters following a rally and march against Duke’s coal policies.

About 300 people gathered in Marshall Park this morning to decry the expansion of Duke’s Cliffside coal-fired power plant in Rutherford County, its use of coal mined by flattening Appalachian mountains and its contributions to global warming.
