The Bloomingtonian arrived at the Farmers’ Market Saturday morning shortly after a protester was arrested by the Bloomington Police Department near the Schooner Creek Farm booth. Upon arrival a member of the Indiana Three Percenters, Gary Weddell, was interviewed near the Schooner Creek booth, and asked questions about the reasons for the group’s appearance at the market. Afterwards, activist Forrest Ian Gilmore was also interviewed to give a summary of the events at the market Saturday morning, and to provide information about the boycott from the perspective of the protesters. Gilmore provided two photos to The Bloomingtonian he made during the arrest of the protester.

The photos, and the two videos are below.
