    Many of the people who were directly impacted by the recent vote to repeal marriage equality in Maine, were people too young to vote.  Some of them held a rally at Pickering Square in Bangor, on November 22nd to express their reaction to the outcome.   Note that you’ll hear a few of them refer to the “Whig and Courier”—that’s a restaurant in Bangor where many people who support same-sex marriage and the “No on 1” campaign, gathered on election night to watch the returns.  We start with one of the event’s organizers, Antonia Carroll, a junior at Bangor High School.
