As protests and occupations around the country and around the world have continued to grow there has been a remarkable turnout of artists, activists, and community leaders in the tiny state of Vermont. Even in cities as small as Burlington; the anger, passion, energy and is palpable.

Sarah Lee Guthrie leads the crowd in a rousing rendition of "This Land is Your Land" the song her grand-father Woody Guthrie wrote over 70 years ago.

With the oldest demonstrator being well into their 90's and the youngest chant leader being no older than 10 or 11, the self-proclaimed movement of the 99 percent lived up to its name as it held its first General Assembly on 10/16/11 and subsequently marched en masse through the streets of Burlington for the 2nd day in a row. This is what democracy looks like.
