The protest appears to be part of a growing BDS movement, individuals opposed to funding apartheid in the Israeli-occupied territories of Palestine. They believe that the PG&E contract with Solel will merely result in heavy tax dollars for the Israeli government, which, in turn, will be used in Palestine.
Said a spokesperson, “Every person in California has a stake in what PG&E does, because we are all forced to buy power from them. I don’t want to be funding apartheid every time I turn on a light, and I don’t think most of my neighbors do, either.”
