A number of activist groups protested the Great State of Maine Air Show on Saturday.
Along with the negative environmental effects, the group said events like these glorify war.
According to the group, Thunderbird airplanes drop bombs and kill people.
Group members said these planes should not be used to entertain.
Veterans for Peace member Bruce Gagnon said, “we’re concerned about this endless war cycle that America is in today we spend two billion dollars every week in Afghanistan. We believe that these air shows basically are recruiting with gimmicks and recruit our children in to these endless wars that benefit corporations. They don’t benefit the American people.”
