As there are a number of events of interest happening this coming Saturday, we’ve set the date of the next event for Saturday from 2pm-4pm. However, please note that our usual Sunday march and General Assembly will also be still be happening at the same time (12:30pm) and location (City Hall Park). For the past few weeks, we’ve been quickly growing in size; now, we begin to add increasing frequency as well as increasing size as our movement for justice continues to build. We did some great work today, and hope to see many of you at one or both of this weekend’s coming actions!

For the past three Sundays, concerned Vermonters have met and marched to demonstrate our solidarity with the Wall Street occupiers and to object to the increasingly brutal tactics being used by the police. We have decided to continue to meet and rally each Sunday until the occupation ends, and we invite you to join us.

We will convene in City Hall Park at 12:30pm and hold a General Assembly to provide updates about the situation on the ground in NYC, discuss effective ways of providing support, and plan actions to demonstrate our support locally.

Please make and bring signs that show your support for the occupation and your opposition to the use of police violence to repress it, and spread this event widely!
