On Saturday afternoon thousands of people gathered along the Reflecting Pool and the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. to rally for a range of progressive issues including green job creation. The officially-titled One Nation Working Together event featured a heavy turnout from labor and civil rights groups, and was billed by the media as the liberal answer to Glenn Beck's Tea Party rally which took place at the same spot in late August. Both events were aimed at energizing their base to get to the polls for the midterm elections on November 2nd.
Former White House Council on Environmental Quality's Special Advisor for Green Jobs, Van Jones, spoke about energy efficiency and renewable energy such as solar and wind as the solution to our economic, security and environmental problems. Here is the full video of his speech followed by a picture slideshow from the event.
