EPISODE DESCRIPTION

On Friday, May 1, an estimated over 1000 people from across Vermont, including nurses and other healthcare workers, descended on the State Capital building in Montpelier for a "Healthcare is a Human Right" rally. The historic rally, organized by NESRI ally the Vermont Workers' Center, was aimed at changing not only what is "politically possible" with respect to healthcare reform, but at making the establishment of the human right to healthcare as a basic right "politically inescapable."

Anja Rudiger, of the Human Right to Health Program at the National Economic and Social Rights Initiative (NESRI), was there to document the historic event. This piece was produced by NESRI's Phil Wider and aired on Philadelphia's Labor Justice Radio (an initiative of the Media Mobilizing Project) May 2009 show.
