Occupy Newport VT (Northeast Kingdom)
We have held numerous rallies and have been featured in the local paper. In August three of us were charged with disorderly conduct for chalking in our small town of Newport. This case is pending. This was covered by Fox 44 from Burlington (not sympathetically) as well as making the front page of the local newspaper. In July we held a Freecycle in Newport and on Sunday we held a free Community Picnic and Speakout.We are working to get a community bulletin board in our town. We participated with Occupy Central Vermont in poetry readings before the show at Bread and Puppet in Glover Vermont. There aren't very many of us. This is a small and very conservative area.
