World Trade Center, Tacoma, Washington - Home to Offices of both U.S. Senators from Washington State, Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell

At the end of the march our "fearless leader" (hehehe) led a rousing speech that connected the economics of globalization with the structural poverty that results from calculated impoverishment. So many people suffer in the world today.

 

The above isn't a great rendering, but it's the gist of part of the message.

 

Policies of exploitation and policies that promote economic inequality drive people to journey to the USA in order to seek a better life. It's a vicious cycle, because the exploitative and abusive policies stem from within the USA itself.
