Pre-DNC march pleads for clean energy path to better health


The March for a Clean Energy Revolution held Sunday in Philadelphia ahead of the Democratic National Convention touted far more than a nationwide swap in fuel sources. The demonstration also voiced a plea for an economy for life, more and better jobs, and health and well-being for people of all ages.

With Philadelphia temperatures in the high 90s, faith groups and farmworkers and more assembled for the march at City Hall, carrying hand-painted banners down Market Street and ending their demonstration a mile away at Independence Hall.
