Watch the One Nation March for a Progressive Economy from the Lincoln Memorial
Over 400 organizations, including faith, environmental and gay rights groups, have organized the "One Nation Working Together" demonstration on the National Mall.
Organizers pronounce on their site, "We march for a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. We march for jobs, justice, and education. We march for an economy that works for all. We march for a nation in which each person who wants to work can find a job that pays enough to support a family. We march to create a million new jobs right away, because the national values that got us out of the Great Depression will get us out of the Great Recession."
Announcing the event are Laura Flanders and Thom Hartmann. Watch the live feed:
