Flood Wall Street protesters rally against capitalism to protect environment

RT America on Sep 22, 2014

Following Sunday’s record breaking environmental march in New York City, crowds turned out again on Monday to “Flood Wall Street” in protest of capitalism’s connection to global warming and environmental destruction. An unsanctioned demonstration not cleared with city authorities, the march has been so far largely peaceful despite small scuffles between police and demonstrators. RT’s Alexey Yaroshevsky is on the ground with the crowds calling for change.

  9. Joe Friendly has an impressive library of videos on his YT channel, including this one. How about Sanders/Hedges in 2016. Bernie could announce, if elected, he’d serve one four-year term, then not seek re-election. Interesting and optimism-generating developments.

    • Thanks, Jerry. Yes, Joe does have a great many videos; I’ve been subscribed to his channel for many, many years.

      I know Hedges would refuse; he’s not interested in being a politician.

      Not sure who Sanders would choose as a VP if he decided to run. He makes a good point that to run as an Independent or Third Party candidate there are many obstacles just on getting on the ballot. Once there, unfortunately, he and any other Third Party candidates would be omitted from the national debates. US-style “democracy”, where presidential candidates are not allowed to debate one another. It’s a total farce.

      I would like to see either Sanders &/or someone else run against Hilary Clinton in the primary election as they would be in the debates, therefore having their agenda exposed to most citizens.
