Episode Description:

On April 4th, over 400 Mainers gathered in the Hall of Flags at the Capitol in Augusta. The first rally for solidarity was to "Bring Our War $$$ Home." Maine Veterans for Peace and Maine Code Pink started a campaign to educate people and local government where over 60% of their tax money is going...into endless wars. This rally preceded the Mural Rally. Though most of the local mass media were in attendance for at least part of the rally, not one word of this informative hour was relayed to the people of Maine. Those speaking about the subject were veterans, doctors and government officials. The very people who really know what is going on. It appears that the trillions of dollars that these wars will cost is being denied by the very people being hurt by such expenditures.

In a related matter, this same group of people heard about what is wrong with Governor Paul LePage's removing a labor Mural from the Department of Labor. The same arrogant attitude that starts wars and removes or revises true history from citizens becomes apparent as this day's speakers make connections. As Veterans for Peace leader, Bruce Gagnon said, it's time we all started working together to correct injustice in whatever form it appears.

Music was provided by The Raging Grannies, Dave Mallett, Dan Ellis and others.
