    While some may be intimidated by the government’s “green scare” tactics, others have mobilized in solidarity and mutual aid. The weekend of June 10th and 11th saw events in southern, midcoast and downeast Maine, as well as around the country, that focused on knowing and protecting civil rights.
    In Portland Maine, at an event called “Resisting the Green Scare”, Ray Luc Levasseur, a former U.S. political prisoner from Maine who spent 20 years in prison and a decade prior to that underground, and Connor Cash, a Long Island based activist who successfully beat federal charges for alleged Earth Liberation Front (ELF) arsons, spoke about their experiences. A note to listeners: The “Mr Worden?? you will hear the speakers refer to, is local civil rights attorney Phil Worden.
