Please join us on Indigenous People’s Day (formerly Columbus Day) to rally in solidarity with Standing Rock’s struggle against the Dakota Access Pipeline and then march to a major public Vermont Gubernatorial debate to push for a “Clean and Green New Deal” for Vermont.
We believe it is a critical opportunity to press Vermont’s political establishment to take bold action to protect our environment, ban fossil fuel infrastructure, establish meaningful reforms for energy democracy and invest in clean water and renewable energy.
We will meet at 5:00 on the green outside of the upper entrance to the University of Vermont’s Davis Center and march to the Double Tree Hotel in South Burlington, where the debate is being held.
More details to follow. Speakers include:
-Charlie Delaney-Megeso, Citizen Nulhegan-Coosuk Tribe, Abenaki , Wabanaki Confederacy Member
– Beverly Little Thunder, Peace & Justice Center Board Member, founder Kunse Keya, author “One Bead at a Time”
– James Ehlers, Lake Champlain International Director
