What are Mountain Occupiers Doing These Days?We’ve been busy plotting our next event, and it’s gonna be a big one! After last summer spent fighting a single (albeit very important) issue, many folks were feeling like we needed to work for change on a bigger scale as well, looking at the larger picture and going for the roots of the problem. Enter:The Rendezvous.This will be a free 2-day event, August 17-18 in Irasburg, VT. There will be workshops, presenters, activism, camping, live music, a performance by Bread and Puppet — a place to learn more about the issues confronting us – and the solutions available- while networking with folks from activist and environmental groups from around the state. We’re especially excited about our first keynote speaker, Peter Brown, author of the book Right Relationships: Building a Whole Earth Economy. We’ll be announcing our second keynote speaker soon, so stay tuned!
