The basic message was the same everywhere, "Step it up, Congress! Cut Carbon 80% by 2050."
Here in Burlington we had many Step It Up events and down at the Waterfront, a cheerful crowd gathered to hear Bernie Sanders speak and eat free Ben and Jerry's ice cream. The weather was dismal but spirits remained high.
Bernie spoke about the important role youth will play in our future and I talked to a group of UVM students who were volunteering at the event. Seth, a forestry student, said that he lies awake at night worrying about the future.
Still, the volunteers dedication and youthful energy gave me hope, a little sliver of it.
Thanks to all the amazing organizers, volunteers and sponsors who made Step It Up a reality!
Avi and Celia (MySpace) entertained the crowd at the Waterfront (despite the chilly temps which made guitar accuracy difficult) and bits of "Can't Feel It" off their new album Off the Floor are woven in.
PS I made this vlog as a b'day present for my 73 yr old mother who spent her birthday, April 14th, attending rallies across town. What a lady!
