Fear of Speaking Freely
Being afraid to speak, is a Civil Rights issue. Students, Teachers, Journalists and the Public should have the freedom to speak freely and to assemble, yet they do not.
Students and citizens need to know, to see and hear alternatives to mainstream media and decide for themselves what is fact and what is fiction. Important issues of fact are being intentionally omitted; key items of history are being rewritten and replaced with contrived innuendo. Few who are normally relied upon for investigation or debate, dare to stand up to these forces.
Here are link to 18 videos of trains arriving, departing or just passing through Brattleboro that I’ve collected on YouTube. Enjoy!!!
Don Francisco and doña Juana, elders of the Q’ero nation, will offer healing and Initiations of Connection in Brattleboro from June 11-16. Check the IBrattleboro calendar for specifics on group events.
This is a time when we are all experiencing great change and transition, and this is the ideal opportunity to shed what no longer serves and step into the Star that burns deep within you.
The Q’ero — don Francisco’s and doña Juana’s people, are saidto be the last direct descendants of the Inca. They historically were respected as the keepers of the knowledge, and held a place of honor at traditional gatherings and festivals. After the Spanish conquest, they remained invisible, living in small villages as high as 16,000 feet above sea level.

I’ve been following along in the Co-op newsletter as General Manager Alex Gyori explains the ongoing woes at the Brattleboro Food Co-op. In a discussion that has ranged from construction problems brought on by the bankruptcy of their lead contractor BayButt to the viccissitudes of Malfunction Junction, Gyori has enumerated a substantial list of “challenges” that the Co-op has faced since opening the new store last summer.
Does anybody know what happened to the food stand that was at the exit 1 outlet center? Is it located somewhere else?
