On November 16th a group of us gathered at the new bridge to the Pratt & Whitney plant to protest at the Ribbon-cutting ceremony, which was attended by local and state dignitaries. The plant is not near completion–some say full operation is still a year away. The ceremony seemed only  for publicity’s sake.

We march over the bridge and up the hill to the round-about at the entrance of the factory site and greeted the many ceremony attendees.

John Boyle wrote two articles about the Pratt & Whitney Ribbon-Cutting for Asheville Watchdog. The 2nd one focused on our voice of dissent.
