We remembered Lac Megantic Tragedy, and protested bomb trains

InfrastructureSign  This past Sunday we came together in Northampton to protest the Bomb Trains, and to remember the victims at Lac Megantic, Quebec .  The protest vigil commemorated the two-year anniversary of the deaths of 47 people and the destruction of the town of Lac Mégantic, Quebec when a train carrying Bakken crude oil derailed and exploded there.   Arranged by members of Climate Action Now/350MA and the Unitarian Society of Northampton’s Climate Action Group.  Photo by Rene Theberge.
