Hands Across the Border: Solidarity and Support in Opposition to Northern Pass and Hydro-Quebec (May 7, 2011)

In a remarkable day of international solidarity and protest, New Hampshire residents reach across the border to join hands with Quebec neighbors in opposition to Northern Pass and Hydro-Quebec, followed by an afternoon information meeting in Pittsburg NH. French language media estimated the crowd at 200. The Colebrook Chronicle provides "breaking news" video and print coverage of the Canadian-American event, and more photos are here.
