Senator Bernie Sanders has been storming the country to raise interest in his populist-themed presidential campaign.
He hit a potential hurdle in Seattle when Black Lives Matter activists blocked him from speaking at a rally in Westlake Park, but later that same day Sanders appeared before the largest crowd he had yet addressed of approximately 15,000 people at the University of Washington.
His stump topics included youth unemployment, minimum wage, income inequality, family leave, political corruption and climate change.
Sanders spoke at UW’s Hec Edmundson Pavilion on Saturday, August 8. Thanks to David Spring for our recording.
