Three arrested in Sensata protest

Source: Freeport Journal Standard

Freeport, Ill. — Protesters at Sensata Technologies blocked the path of trucks leaving the plant Monday resulting in three arrests.

“They (protesters) went over and blocked the truck,” said Sensata employee Tom Gaulrapp. “It kept moving forward nudging people. The police came and told people to get out of the road.”

The three protesters that refused to move out of the way of the trucks were arrested for failure to comply with a police order. Their bond information was unavailable.

“We were trying to stop the movement of the machines,” said 16-year-old Karri Penniston, who was one of those arrested. “The more we stand up, the more people are going to notice. People think that we’re out here just because we know someone who works there. This affects everyone. I’m getting what I want out of this. I’m getting my point proven.”
