Luke Skywalkers and Hans Solo
lock down in West Roxbury
Two young people locked themselves to a metal plate covering the pipeline, preventing construction workers from working and shutting down business as usual. To learn more about the rebellion that our friends Ben and Martin are waging visit The Rebel Alliance.
Han Solo and Luke Skywalker were arrested Tuesday in West Roxbury. Well, not quite. But two men dressed as the Rebel Alliance heroes led a “Star Wars”-themed protest at the West Roxbury Lateral Pipeline construction project. Ben Weilerstein, 22, and Martin Hamilton, 21, chained themselves to a steel plate at the site.
