We just got an email from the Occupy Vermont movement, which is planning to occupy the State of the State address this Thursday. The email says:
Silently displaying their feelings about details of the Governor’s assessment of the state of the State, using hand signals indicating approval, disapproval or withheld judgment, Vermonters from around the state will line the House chamber to occupy the state of the State address on the third day of the 2012 legislative session.
Dressed in green, with personal messages for the Governor taped to their chests, Vermonters identifying themselves as the 99% will make themselves visible in a peaceful and respectful demonstration of their position at the center of government.
The point, organizers say, is to draw attention to the needs of the regular people of the state, who are hurt most by the budget cuts.
