Shadow Vice President To March On The Chamber Of Commerce
The Green Shadow Cabinet asks: “What are the most dire issues we face? If you’re like most Americans, you’d probably say the climate crisis and the jobs crisis. So why is Washington so obsessed with budget cuts and fossil fuels?”
Green Shadow Vice President Cheri Honkala has an answer, and she’s bringing it to the steps of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. This weekend, Honkala is leading an economic protest march all the way from Philadelphia to Washington D.C.
The march begins this coming Saturday, May 18, at Noon, at the corner of North 3rd and West Cumberland streets in Philadelphia. The marchers plan to arrive at the headquarters of U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington D.C., just down the block from the White House, six days later. The message of the marchers: Government policies that cater to the demands of large corporations, while ignoring human needs and the climate crisis, are destructive, not just ethically, but economically as well.
The name of the march: Operation Green Jobs. 54 marchers have committed to participate so far.
