Hundreds join "Medicaid Marches" across the country demanding Medicaid expansion

Last week, hundreds of people across the country marched for Medicaid and the human right to healthcare -- from Madison, WI, to Fayetteville, NC, to Wilkes-Barre, PA -- in a national week of action coordinated by the Nonviolent Medicaid Army.

Here in Vermont, we marched and rallied in Bellows Falls, Burlington, St. Johnsbury, and Barre to reject the privatization of Vermont's healthcare system under OneCare Vermont and demand the expansion of Medicaid to everyone as a public good.

Kicking off the rally

Walking down the hill

Unite the poor!

Through downtown...

Through Bellows Falls

And towards the river...

Across the canal

Arriving at the Way Station

Mads addressing the crowd

J.R. addressing the crowd

Everybody's got a right to live

And Friday evening rallies in Barre, St. Johnsbury, and Burlington.
