Climate change inspired protestors, Bangor Daily News


Maine media opted not to cover the protest and arrests at General Dynamics Bath Iron Works last weekend, but a reporter at BDN did a followup story that is very good.

Because it may appear in the Midcoast paper and not more locally (I don’t know), I have linked it here for our Hancock County readers. Please share.




From Lisa Savage:
Good news here. The Bangor Daily News reporter Beth Brogan contacted me Monday saying the BDN weekend reporter did not do us justice and could I provide her with some photos, which I did. Here’s her story just published Tuesday morning with the BEST headline: “Climate change inspired 25 protesters who were arrested at Bath Iron Works.” TY to Peter Robbins and Jim Anderberg for the photos.

Protesters block a bus carrying attendees to Bath Iron Works for Saturday’s christening of the USS Lyndon B. Johnson. Police arrested 25 people on misdemeanor charges related to the protest.
