Midcoast Maine Indivisible to hold candlelight vigil for democracy

Event has passed

Midcoast Maine Indivisible is holding a candlelight assembly, Tuesday, January 19, at 5 p.m., at Park and Main streets, Rockland.

"In a time of bloody insurrection, let us gather with peace and positive spirit to honor the past, to share hope for our future, and to stand for democracy now,” the organization said, in a news release.

"January 6 was unfortunately not the end of Trump-inspired revolt,” it said. "Federal law enforcement experts expect armed mobs to descend on D.C. one more time on or before Inauguration Day, trying to overturn the election by force. So the night before Inauguration Day, we will gather in simple, quiet, peaceful, and civic contrast for democracy here in Rockland, Maine.

"Please come together one more time with a light to shine (a candle or a flashlight will do). Holding our candles in the darkness the night before Inauguration Day, we will honor, remember, and mourn all we have lost during the Trump years. We will welcome a dawning future of possibility. We will support democracy in the present moment."
