Rally is September 13

In Brattleboro on September 13 there will be a health care rally. It will be from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. outside 1154 Putney Road. The organizers said, in the USA, “over 600,000 people have died from Covid during this pandemic, many of them because our country denies health care to the poor. This pandemic has revealed more clearly than ever before that the 140 million poor and low-income people in the United States are united by the fact that we, our families, and our communities are in a life-and-death fight for health care. We take action together to say that urgent action is needed now. Medicaid can and should be expanded to be a truly universal and comprehensive single payer healthcare system with no restrictions or hurdles.”

In Springfield, Tanisha Arena runs a group that has a web site at www.AriseSpringfield.org. On August 29 she told the Valley Post, “Eversource needs to pay up. It’s a slap on the face to the city and to rate payers who during these same times have experienced increases to our utility bills. And we also know when any of us is delinquent on our bills they promptly turn off services. It’s clear they have turned heavy profits and this refusal to pay what they owe to the city in tax revenue impacts the community that they benefit off of.”

Eversource Corporation owes Springfield $44 million in unpaid property taxes from as far back as 2012.

In Northampton on July 30, 2021, activists held a well-attended rally to protest Eversource. The company causes climate change. One of the groups that endorsed the rally has a web site at www.SunriseMovement.org.
