Global warming protest outside of Republican Senator Pat Toomey's Harrisburg office.
35 enthusiastic protesters held signs and chanted outside Toomey's office in downtown Harrisburg on July 6, from 11:30-1:00pm. Our activists' age ranged from 2 to 85 years. Ed brought a van full from State College, I brought a couple people from Philly, and activists from York and Harrisburg came as well. We had given a heads-up to Senator Casey's regional office manager, Matt Leonard. He stopped by at noon and we all praised Senator Casey for his vote against the CRA. You can see the signs praising Casey in the attached photos, but there were lots more signs blasting Toomey. Ed had called Toomey's office to let them know we were protesting outside their office, and why we were protesting, and invited them to come down and explain Toomey's bad votes, but no one came down. So we decided to go up to his office. Unfortunately, the building guard wouldn't let us in, but he did get Toomey's office manager, Bob deSouza, to come down at long last, where he was grilled by the group about Toomey's bad votes.
