Bonus video clips: Burlington in the News on Free Speech TV
Thought you might appreciate a short clip featuring Burlington's Ben Cohen on last night's The Big Picture with Thom Hartmann. Ben's talks about why Ben & Jerry's and other socially responsible business leaders have decided to support the Occupy Movement, citing the potential for a massive grassroots movement to make long-lasting social change.

Also, we know that many of you were inspired by Greg Palast's talk a few weeks ago, featuring his book Vultures' Picnic. Here's a short excerpt of Greg on last night' Big Picture, talking about the grounds for bringing criminal charges against Shell Oil for using the Nigerian military to kill and torture people who stood in the way of their profits. He poses that, under Citizen's United, if corporations are people, shouldn't they be charged with murder? Or should they just be able to pour blood money into our politics?
Tune in to BT122 tomorrow to watch more programming from Thom Hartmann, Amy Goodman, and many other courageous independent journalists. All, thanks to you!
