Maine Currents 1/11/17

Producer/Host: Amy Browne
Studio Engineer: Joel Mann

Martin Luther King day is just a few days away and it’s clear that the spirit of political dissent and non-violent civil disobedience is alive and well. We’re joined by Eliza Townsend of the Maine Women’s Policy Center; Genevieve Morgan and Suzanne Moreshead – two of the organizers of the Bangor-based group, and Nicolle Littrell from the Belfast-based group of people planning to travel to the upcoming Women’s March on Washington; Ambureen Rana, Payton Amero & Annabelle Osborne, organizers of the Youth and Nonviolence Workshops that will be taking place at the Maine Discovery Museum on MLK day; and Dud Hendrick and Russell Wray of the Zumwalt 12 – who are heading to court soon for charges stemming from engaging in civil disobedience at BIW last year. And we open the phone lines for questions/comments from listeners.
