Activism section

Of Money, Politics, Unions and You!

"Porkorate Paul" is the enormous big pink pig, seen squatting in the bed of a sign and slogan covered pick-up truck and puffing a cigar. He came to Brattleboro this Monday morning, October 20th, on one of his many stops throughout New England. His purpose: to parade his pompous presumptions of wealthy entitlement over the lower echelon (that’s us). And like a boar, greedily tearing at the soil for every last morsel of truffle fungi, he is tearing and shredding the roots of Union strength--even at Democracy--with total disregard for the potential of our future economic health.

Brattleboro Solidarity With Palestine Hosting Another Event Thursday August 21st, 7pm @ Marlboro

Brattleboro Solidarity with Palestine is hosting another event Thursday August 21st, 7pm @ Marlboro (28 Vernon St. Downtown Brattleboro)

Gaza is still under siege. Over 5,000 homes have been destroy and people are seeking refuge in school, shelters and others' homes. The infrastructure in Gaza has been destroyed meaning that there is no water filtration for clean drinking water, no sewage systems, and no electricity. This then impacts the medical care that doctors are able to give. And these Israeli attacks would not have been possible without the military and financial support of the Unites States Government.
