MONTPELIER, Vt.—The contention that "health care is a human right" brought hundreds of people to the Statehouse steps on Friday to demand that Vermont implement universal health care coverage.
Friday's event, organized by the Vermont Workers' Center and other progressive-leaning groups, included some disruption as chanting demonstrators entered the Statehouse and were admonished by officials for disrupting business in parts of the building. There were no arrests.
