The Montpelier Downtown Workers’ Union Is In Effect!
03 Jul 2004
In Vermont, where 79 percent of businesses employ nine or less people, building a strong union movement could be an uphill battle. Many workers are employed in small service sector operations highly dependent on tourist dollars, where organizing has been a seemingly impossible task. Additionally, most of these workplaces pay low wages and employ people on an ‘at will’ basis, where workers can be fired at anytime for any reason. These economic ‘on the job’ realities have long posed difficult questions for workers interested in building a movement that gives them a voice on the job and strives to organize broad based working class power in the Green Mountains. Enter the Montpelier Downtown Workers Union.

Green Strategy 2004-2008
02 Jul 2004
How did the David Cobb/Pat LaMarche ticket receive the Green Party nomination? And what does it mean for the Green Party in particular and American politics in general? My conclusion is that the so-called "red states" Greens, by rejecting Ralph Nader/Peter Camejo campaign, diminished the Green Party's own strength in the "safe state" of California, ironically without helping the pro-war Democratic Party candidate John Kerry (despite the hope of the Cobb/LaMarche faction) in the most crucial "swing states": Ohio (20 electors/3.6% victory margin in 2000), Florida (27/0.0%), Pennsylvania (21/4.1%), and Michigan (17/5.1%).

Surviving Deadly Heat at this Summer’s Political Demonstrations
01 Jul 2004
Political protests in the middle of summer, such as the upcoming Republican National Convention (RNC) protests this August in NYC, and those in Boston at the DNC, mix heat and adrenaline in what can be a deadly combination. Protests hold different demands than normal heat environments, including the need for protective clothing, such as long sleeves, pants, and shoes, when one would normally shed layers of clothing. And the need to avoid oil-based sunscreens that could trap pepper spray onto your skin. Then there are the usual problems to watch out for, such as dehydration, heat exhaustion/stroke, and sunburn. People forget that standing on hot pavement surrounded by lots of hot bodies for hours increases summer heat at protests. Likewise, many miles are often hiked on a protest route, yet few prepare for marches as they would for long summer hikes. Preparing for the heat with a protest environment in mind, will relieve the pressure on street medics who often get overwhelmed treating heat illnesses, and will give you more energy, and less discomfort, during protests in summer.
