Bernie Sanders Rally Draws Crowd of Activists in Pasadena
On Friday, May 31, Bernie Sanders campaigned in Pasadena, CA as part of his three-stop tour in California.
Hundreds of #FeelTheBern supporters showed up to the rally Friday.
Sanders talked about putting an end to “corporate welfare,” enlarging the social security program, constitutional rights for women and prison reformation.
“There are more people in prison in the U.S. than anywhere else in the world,” Sanders said.
Sanders rallied for racial, social, economic and environmental justice for the “working people of this country” –– all ideas he previously announced running against Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential Election.
Many in attendance were college students.
“Younger people are looking at more debt, lower wages and they’re finding it harder to afford a home of their own,” Sanders said.
Sanders emphasized that bringing the black, white, Latino, Native Americans and Asian American working-class together was one of his main goals.
He also bashed capitalistic ideals and blamed the system for the “one percent” and corporate America for disproportionate wealth distributed. “You cannot have it all,” Sanders said, “while the rest of us just a few.”
