Above is a short video of the end of the march Saturday, and the very vocal ‘Bus for Progress’ group from central New Jersey , who so kindly gave Kathie and I a ride for most of the march, escaping from the heat. The bus also picked up several other elderly who had collapsed along side the march route as we went along.
You will see Kathie A. and a quick view of Padma (MoveOn Sullivan ) and others from MoveOn and various other progressive groups a the “StoptheFrackAttack’ march on Saturday, July 28, 2012, on the ‘grotto’ area outside the US Capitol.
Another successful coalition of many groups as far as Ohio and North Carolina, joined many from NY, NJ, PA and the Northeast, including, ‘NYagainstfracking.org’. ‘350.org’ (Bill McKibben), the ‘Sierra Club’, our sponsor, ‘Catskill Mountainkeeper’. Thanks for the opportunity to Carolyn and the rest. 23 Sullivan residents, including myself, were able to go. Thanks to your fabulous bus driver, Andy, who was ‘longsuffering’. A long but successful day, despite dangerous heat, for many, and the long day. Democracy now had a short clip from the march today, (Monday, July 30), announcing thousands in the crowd.
