We Are Change Colorado Protests Against Big Food Lobby GMA Leadership Forum, Leader Arrested
In response to the big food lobbyist group hosting a forum for leaders in the “consumer packaged goods” (junk food) industry, We Are Change Colorado organized a last minute protest at the Broadmoor resort in Colorado Springs. Hotel security deterred protesters while waiting for police to respond. One active leader of the group, Bruce Baumann, was arrested on a trespassing violation according to a Colorado Springs Police spokesperson.
Officers responded to the scene after security contacted police claiming protesters were not authorized to be on the resort’s private property. Mr. Baumann was arrested and released after processing.
