Burlington Votes to Bring the Troops Home Now!

by James Marc Leas, Colleen McLaughlin, and Ashley Smith



In the state's (Vermont)largest city, the Burlington Anti-War Coalition (BAWC) proposed a resolution (full text below) that called for bringing the troops home now. It passed with 65.2% of the vote. It won in all the city's wards, including the two most conservative. In the towns of Marshfield and Hinesburg (one of the more conservative towns in Vermont) voters also considered and passed "Out Now" resolutions by overwhelming margins.
