Weekly Dig interview with Lynn United members at the march.
A strong delegation from Lynn, MA joined the "March for Good Jobs and a Fair Economy" in Boston on Monday, October 10, 2011.
The march began at the "Occupy Boston" encampment at Dewey Square. Participants in "Occupy Boston" were joined by numerous labor unions, community organizations, and students. The Lynn delegation included members of Lynn United for Change, Mass Senior Action, Neighbor to Neighbor, North Shore Labor Council, and others.
Marchers demanded action to address growing economic inequality, large corporations' dominance over the political system, and big banks' failure to resolve the foreclosure crisis by keeping families in their homes.
The march ended at the Charlestown Bridge, which is in need of repair. March organizers said this symbolized their demand for spending on job-creating infrastructure projects rather than Wall St. bailouts.
