Groups protest for causes in Falmouth  

Since the 1.65-megawatt Wind 1 turbine began operation at the town wastewater treatment facility, nearby residents have complained that low-frequency sound waves and noise cause them headaches, dizziness and other health concerns.

FALMOUTH – Within about a block of each other, anti-war, anti-wind and anti-Wall Street demonstrators – about 25 people total – picketed for their respective causes along Main Street late Saturday morning.

“As citizens, we have a responsibility to voice our opinion,” said Todd Morrison, 52, of Falmouth, who stood in front of the Falmouth Post Office with about 10 others in the peace vigil.

Bearing rainbow-colored flags that read “Peace” and homemade signs protesting the wars in Afghanistan and elsewhere, the group began holding the vigil after the U.S. began bombing Afghanistan following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, said Joyce Johnson, a founding vigil member. They meet on Main Street each Saturday for about an hour.

Directly next to them was David Moriarty, who stood with two other men next to his pickup truck adorned with billboards and signs calling for the decommissioning of wind turbines in Falmouth.

Since the 1.65-megawatt Wind 1 turbine began operation at the town wastewater treatment facility, nearby residents have complained that low-frequency sound waves and noise cause them headaches, dizziness and other health concerns.

“We’d rather have our citizens healthy than for the town to make a buck,” Moriarty said. He plans to picket in different locations each day leading up to Falmouth’s town meeting next month when a warrant article regarding turbines will be presented.

Protesters with Occupy Falmouth, an ongoing daily protest inspired by the growing Occupy Wall Street movement, stood on the village green across from Bank of America for a protest scheduled to begin at 10 a.m.

The approximately 10 protesters, who held signs disparaging corporate greed, dispersed shortly before noon as a brief flash of heavy rain fell on all three demonstrations.
