    Penobscot River Rally and Flotilla

    1) Today we hear some audio from Saturday’s Penobscot River Rally and Flotilla on the Bangor Waterfront, where people gathered to support the Penobscot Tribe’s struggle for continued stewardship of the River, and other local and statewide struggles for clean water and clean energy.
    2) Over 30 organizations co-sponsored the event, which showed support for the Penobscot Nation’s efforts to retain sovereignty and stewardship on the section of the river passing through their island territory. In 2012, the Maine Attorney General’s office sought to establish that section as State territory. The Tribe has sued the State in an on going legal case: Penobscot Nation v Attorney General Janet Mills.
    3) Speakers broadcast in this program address the Juniper Ridge Landfill expansion in Old Town and the dumping of toxic leachate into the Penobscot River and on state bills and policies that could support or paralyze the development of solar energy in Maine.

    Guests:
    Ed Spencer, Old Town resident, logger and intervenor in Juniper Ridge Landfill expansion process
    Dawn Neptune Adams, Penobscot tribal member and activist
    Fred Greenhalgh, ReVision Energy and solar activist
    Jim Freeman, Flotilla organizer, Alliance for the Common Good,

    This program was produced in partnership with the Sunlight Media Collective.
