350 Maine at Brayton Point Summer Heat Action

An estimated 350 people gathered in Somerset, MA, for 350 Massachusett’s Summer Heat “Shut Down Brayton Point Coal Plant” action. 350 Maine sent down a busload of people, including allies from 350 New Hampshire who boarded the bus in Portsmouth. You can read about it here or here. 

Forty-four people were arrested as well. Last report had 27 released on their own recognizance--no word on the others--and one protester hospitalized for dehydration. 350 Massachusetts organizers were very appreciative that we made the effort to support their action. 350 Maine sends a big shout-out to Lew McGregor for his help setting up and then driving the bus!
