My job interview was postponed 24 hours so I was able to jump into the car and get a few pictures from the protest today. The snow was steady and regular but it didn’t prevent an enthusiastic crowd of 70 people from turning up to protest against Planned Parenthood and their plans to open up in Fitchburg.

The protesters were on both sides of Main street which is one way.

No snowstorm was going to deter them:

Of course some took shelter under a convenient awning:

Franciscans don’t need awnings against a mere snowstorm:

And the City counsel was represented by Rosemary Reynolds

For Fitchburg it was an impressive showing. Only Unitil could have drawn a bigger crowd around here.

As time permits, I’ll get a more detailed story up.
