A handful of protestors gathered outside Salt River Project’s headquarters Friday morning, urging environmental regulators to force additional pollution controls on the company’s coal-fired power plant near Page.

Nine adults and five children showed up for the protest, but Sierra Club officials said they submitted 10,000 petitions to the Environmental Protection Agency regarding the plant.

Erica Cheshire of Phoenix brought her two boys, Jaxon, 10 and Keegan, 7.

Jaxon held a sign that said “Your greed gave me asthma” while Keegan had one reading “I deserve clean air.”

“We are huge climate change activists,” Cheshire said while the boys held their signs for a photo.
