Bill McKibben of 350.org was invited to speak at the Healthcare Justice March rally, but due to a scheduling conflict, was unable to be there.
“I was surprised and thrilled to get an email from Bill declining our invitation but volunteering to make a video in support of the HJM,” says Sue Saltmarsh, director of the demonstration. “The connection between human and the environmental health is undeniable, as is the fact that the actions of humans have so harmed the environment. Having such a respected leader voice support for our efforts is truly gratifying.”
The organizers of the HJM hope to see many environmental activists attend the rally, as well as those involved in other social justice causes.
