Vermonters Planning
To Secede From The US
From Vermont

An Impossible Dream or a Vision of the Future?

State House
Montpelier, Vermont

October 28, 2005

James Howard Kunstler, author of The Long Emergency, will
be the keynote speaker at The Vermont Convention on
Independence to be held in the House Chamber of the State
House in Montpelier on Friday October 28th. Sponsored by
the Second Vermont Republic, the convention, which will
begin at 9:00 a.m. and conclude at 5:00 p.m., is open to
the public and free of charge.

This historic event will be the first statewide convention
on secession in the United States since North Carolina
voted to secede from the Union on May 20, 1861.

Other speakers will include Professor Frank Bryan, UVM;
Kirkpatrick Sale, author of Human Scale, J. Kevin
Graffagnino, Executive Director, Vermont Historical
Society; Professor Eric Davis, Middlebury College; Shay
Totten, editor, Vermont Guardian; Antoine Robitaille,
journalist Le Devoir (Quebec City); G. Roderick Lawrence,
CEO, Stevenson Kellogg(Canada); (Rev.) Ben T. Matchstick;
and General Ethan Allen (aka Jim Hogue). General Allen is
expected to travel by horse to the State House.

The objectives of the convention are twofold. First, to
raise the level of awareness of Vermonters of the
feasibility of independence as a viable alternative to a
nation which has lost its moral authority and is
unsustainable. Second, to provide an example and a process
for other states and nations which may be seriously
considering separatism, secession, independence, and
similar devolutionary strategies.

The Second Vermont Republic is a peaceful, democratic,
grassroots, libertarian populist movement committed to the
return of Vermont to its status as an independent republic
as it once was between 1777 and 1791.
