Nurses mobilize against austerity and Keystone XL

June 20 – CNA/NNU Rally Against Austerity & Keystone XL

Nurses, environmentalists and other community members will be marching across the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco on June 20 to send a message to Wall Street and leaders in Washington, DC a message: Stop the Keystone XL pipeline! Stop austerity!

Rally organizers say that Keystone represents the false choices of the austerity era. Jobs VS the planet. Economic recovery VS healthy communities. Our money or our lives.

The protesters are demanding to tax Wall Street to help save our environment.

Rally: Noon
Location: Battery East off Lincoln Boulevard near the Golden Gate Bridge Pavilion
