What an amazing trip to the Climate March with this awesome group of Vermont activists (look who else is in photo!) who bussed to Montpelier today for the 100th Day of the Trump debacle-presidency! We were fortunate to embark on a positive action of solidarity and joined with millions of protesters around the world, a day after the EPA announced that its website devoted to climate science will be removed from the public after 20 years.

BEST SLOGANS/SIGNS: “There is no Planet B,” “Hey hey, ho ho, Scott Pruitt has got to go!” “Resistance is here to stay, welcome to your 100th day.” “The oceans are rising and so are we!” I just heard from my 350 VT friends that over 200,000 people took the streets in Washington DC for climate, jobs, and justice!

Don’t stop now: write to the Department of the Interior and tell them to preserve our national monuments (Dept. of the Interior, 1849 C Street NW, Washington, DC 20240), join your local activist groups and May 1st is a March for Justicia Migrante in Burlington, VT (and other locations)—”Milk With Dignity!” Migrant Justice leader Enrique “Kike” Balcazar was one of the featured speakers, talking about climate refugees and immigrant rights, my friend, Shela Linton, delivered a powerful speech on the statehouse today, too, and of course Bernie Sanders was there with climate change facts at his fingertips! Thanks to the Putney Huddle group, especially Laura Lynette Chapman for organizing!
