A good day in Vermont

It was pretty cold in Montpelier yesterday, but the sun was shining brightly, and the cold didn't stop a few hundred people from marching up State St. to the State House and expressing our outrage and opposition to Bush's war in Iraq. Speakers included Nancy Brown, founder of the Vermont chapter of Military Families Speak Out; Pablo Paredes, a navy veteran who was court-martialed for refusing to board his ship and transport soldiers to this illegal war; and Robin Lloyd, a long-time activist, who spoke of her trial and upcoming imprisonment for protesting the School of the Americas, and also of her experience more than twenty years ago as a member of the Winooski 44.

The march received coverage in both the Burlington Free Press and the Barre-Montpelier Times Argus.
