"We fight for Josh! We remember Josh!"
On November 10th, 2011 the Occupy Burlington movement lost a valued member of our encampment. Joshua Pfenning, a 35-year-old Army veteran, father, and fellow occupier took his own life. The Burlington Police Department seized this as an opportunity to shut down the occupation and attempt to put down the movement. The following evening the entire General Assembly gathered at the park to remember Josh and remind the community that we weren't going anywhere.
