NEK 99% (Occupy the NEK) will be showing the award-winning documentary "Windfall" Thursday February 14 at 6 PM in the State Conference Room 2nd floor, Hebard Building Main St. Newport. More than just a movie about industrial wind, this is is a film about citizens using the democratic process at the grassroots level. Described in a Washington Post as a "genuine cliffhanger", Windfall documents the heightening tension within the community of Meredith, New York, and its surprising conclusion. Following the film, a resident of Newark, Vermont will lead a discussion of the very similar situation currently unfolding within our own Northeast Kingdom.
