Mari Cordes, President of the Vermont Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals, discusses the People’s Climate March, the largest environmental protest in history with up to 400,000 people marching in New York City plus other marches and rallies in 166 countries. More than 2,000 Vermonters participated. Many unions and workers’ organizations actively participated in the march. The turnout far exceeded expectations, as people took to the streets to demand action on global warming.
EQUAL TIME is where Vermonters talk about issues ignored by the corporate media—mothers opposing toxic pollution, workers fighting for decent jobs, nurses working for health care reform, students speaking out about their education, farmers struggling against corporate agribusiness, and more.
