MISSILE DEFENSE IN MAINE?
- We had another Gaza support vigil yesterday here in Bath, Maine. A dozen folks turned out. We'll do it again next Sunday at noon.
- There is an article in the Portland Press Herald today about the Pentagon's 'Missile Defense Agency' public hearings in our state this week. I was quoted in the article saying that Maine Veterans for Peace (VFP) is opposed to the proposed deployment of ground-based missile defense systems in Maine. I'll be driving up to Rangeley (in the western mountains) on Wednesday to attend the hearing and to then do a second drive of our peace walk route that begins there on October 11 and ends in North Berwick on Oct 20. I got a call today from Maine public radio who also interviewed me about why VFP is against the possible interceptor base in our state. You can read more about the public comment process here. All US citizens can leave comments if you'd like.
