More than 40 protestors were arrested at the Brayton Point Power Station during a march on July 28. Those arrested were among 400 protestors who were carrying windmills and solar panels, and wore red shirts identifying them as willing to risk arrest, according to the Associated Press.
The protest was organized by 350.org Massachusetts and was part of national actions by 350.org. The organization worked with police in planning the protest and no injuries were reported, according to the Associated Press.
Brayton Point Power Station was recently the target of a one-boat blockade when a lobster boat blockaded a shipment of coal to the facility last May in a protest also linked to 350.org.
