Leaf Gulf protesters charter plane to strip Saudi Arabia of ‘blood money’

Lancaster – The protests, including a small on-site rally and an aerial announcement, marked the first round of the controversial LIV Golf Series at Bolton International Golf Club.

A private plane flew in early Friday night with a protest sign that read, “Bolton rejects Saudi blood money,” to show a local group’s opposition to the LIV event, according to Patrick Mahoney, a Bolton resident who helped to pay for the flight.

The flight took place between 17:30 and 18:00
