Dramatic Reading of Woonsocket City Council Meeting

Woonsocket City Council

Independent blogger Steve Ahlquist is surely the most patient human in Rhode Island. Not only does he attend seemingly every rally, protest, and town council meeting across the state, but he also frequently posts videos to UpriseRI.com, and even provides written transcripts of each meeting. I can’t imagine a duller chore, but what a great resource for the rest of us! Anyway, September 16 marked the first city council meeting for Alex Kithes, a 26-year old progressive who won a special Woonsocket council election this summer after another councilor took a job out of state. At this meeting, Kithes introduced a resolution suggesting the city pass a resolution denouncing white nationalism. In a surreal yet familiar turn of events, the city did not pass a resolution denouncing white nationalism but instead passed… something else. You can read Ahlquist’s transcription of the events, or you can visit Cranston, where members of Epic Theatre Company will re-enact the city council meeting. It’s followed by a talkback, which will hopefully involve some primal scream exercises or something. Think of it as early prep for holiday interactions with your most clueless family members.
