May 31, 2009 (Lakeside) – Mountain Echo gave a debut performance of their new Powerlink protest song during a fundraiser at the Hazy Meadow ranch yesterday. East County Magazine has the exclusive videotape of the song performed at the event, where more than 350 people gathered in opposition to the high-voltage powerlines proposed by San Diego Gas & Electric Co.

The protest song calls on William Metz, supervisor of the Cleveland National Forest, to “stop this shameful mess.” For the project to be built, Metz must first approve the final segment of Sunrise Powerlink through Cleveland National Forest.
