Great Event at Bath Ironworks

Filmed March 21, 2015 in front of Bath Iron Works in Bath, Maine. On a snowy, cold winter day, just as the workers were heading home after a shift change, some 50 activists gathered to protest the building of war ships, and to participate in the national day of mobilization against the war machine.

Paco Michelson and his wife Hee Eun “Silver” Park attended the event and spoke passionately about their three years in Gangjeong Village where the massive naval base under construction is destroying the village, livelihoods and the environment.

Bruce Gagnon gave an impassioned talk about what the military industrial complex is doing to our government and our treasury, and how America’s aggression against Russia has the world on the brink of a nuclear World War III.

Lisa Savage wrote the street theater play,  Canteen Annie at the Bomb Factory, and Maureen Kehoe-Ostensen organized the event as part of the lenten vigils at BIW.
