"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.

  1. Hello Dylan,

    My name is Mackenzie and I'm an art intern at a politically progressive magazine in Chicago. We're looking for photos from this event to accompany an article on our website, and we would absolutely love to feature one of your pictures. If you're interested, shoot me an email at art@inthesetimes.com, and I'll fill you in on all the details.

    Thanks a lot, and we look forward to hearing from you!
