Organized by Feminists Against Trump, this is an absurdist demonstration, on the Burlington VT marketplace, of public panic in response to the incoming United States president, his appointments and policies. The performance was delivered in a few locations on the street.
"Stop Violence and Deportations!" Rally, march, and speak-out sponsored by Migrant Justice to protest the detention of farmworker leader Miguel Alcudia.
On September 22, Migrant Justice farmworker leader Miguel Alcudia was leaving a VT dairy farm and his co-worker tipped him off that he was being followed by an unmarked car. When he arrived in the town of Vergennes, VT, undercover agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested him and took him into custody. This is the second Migrant Justice leader detained in recent months. Miguel is currently detained at Strafford County House of Correction in New Hampshire with $21,000 bail.

In solidarity with the #NoDAPL resistance, join Vermont's pipefighters and march onto an active Vermont Gas/Michels pipeline construction site to shut them down for the day. Activists hold up the indigenous-led struggle 1500 miles away and raise money to send to this resistance out west.
