Main Street and St. Paul Street, Burlington
Continuing our tour of out-of-state megabanks in Burlington, this week we will be encouraging customers of TD Bank to move their money to a local, cooperatively owned, democratic credit union. We have some signs left over from previous pickets, but feel free to make your own as well!

Green Mountain Care is Vermont’s plan to provide universal health insurance. It was established by Act 48 in 2011. The intricacies of funding and coverage are being formulated right now. A front group for the 1%, “Vermonters for Health Care Freedom” has been set up to try and weasel control of the process, thereby guaranteeing for themselves the greatest profits, the least taxation and regulation; while screwing the 99% percent.
DO NOT SLEEP THROUGH THIS. If you do, you will wake up with a monstrous hangover, and an unforgivable legacy for your old age and future generations.
The 1% is extremely aware of the revolutionary (for the US) nature of this plan. They have been saving up and planning for this battle for decades.
But they don’t have what we have: smarts, resourcefulness, resilience, grooviness, and the knowledge of the rightness of our cause.
This may not be as exciting as fighting among ourselves over when it’s best to sleep in the park, but IT IS ONE OF OUR FEW BEDROCK ISSUES. The coolest part is that the machinery is already in place. We don’t have to invent anything. We don’t have to do a “black-ops direct action” to sneak in.
All we need to do is show up.
Let me repeat that.
All YOU need to do is show up.
. Leaving CHP at 4 PM. WE NEED AS MANY FROM THE 99% AS WE CAN MUSTER, to show that we mean business. Who’s coming?

City Hall Park
Want to find gifts for those you love this holiday season in a way that builds community? Then come on down to the Occupy Burlington Really Really Free Market this coming Sunday in City Hall Park at 11:30am. Bring spare items (clothes, books, knick-nacks, etc.) that are in good shape and you think might make good gifts, and browse your neighbors’ treasures. Additionally, there will be a “Time Bank,” so if there’s a skill you’d like to donate to the community (i.e. a massage, a haircut, etc.), pop by there. To learn more about how a Really Really Free Market works, see the wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Really_really_free_market
The market will end at 2pm sharp, when the weekly General Assembly is scheduled to begin…
