Why are we here. What are we asking for? There was a rare shout out here and there but no consistent focus from the many speakers at the podium today on specific demands coming out of the 50th anniversary for the March on Washington were. There is at least a specific AGENDA.
It’s interesting to review the demands from the 1963 march. One speaker today mentioned that we all had to get busy today to make sure that the same issues from 1963 and 2013 don’t pop up again (undressed) in 2063. The demands in 1963 were listed in the program, there were ten (pay particular attention to 6,7 and 8).
