VIDEO: the National Mall, on Oct. 2, 2010, in Washington, D.C., at the Lincoln Memorial, a massive rally/march was held. Its organizers advocated for jobs, peace, quality education, a single payer healthcare system and for other important social justice issues. ANSWER’s National Coordinator Brian Becker demanded an end to wars that cost a billion dollars every two days, instead demanding that the money be spent here.
[My favorite chant from the below video: Obama ain’t no socialist. WE ARE. WE ARE.]
