The stakes have never been higher and the nonprofit, independent journalism of Common Dreams needs your help. Please help us reach our Mid-Year Campaign goal today:
Six more protesters were arrested at the Bain-owned Sensata plant in Freeport, Ill. for sitting in and demanding a full severance package for the 170 workers who will lose their jobs as early as Friday when the plant's operations are outsourced to China. The protesters, some of whom said they were "scared to death" being in a police car, said they'd do it again. Good folks. In video of the arrests, the police arrive around the 20-minute mark.
