Cynthia McKinney, Green Party Presidential candidate, talks at a benefit for 9/11 First Responders after the screening of "Save The Brave" a documentary about First Responders and their families.
A disproportionate number of First Responders are ill as a result of the toxic conditions at the 9/11 site. The Government does not acknowledge the toxic conditions nor is it offering significant support to the First Responders or their survivors.
One key to changing that is a House Bill HR 3543 providing such resources. Cynthia McKinney supports such legislation and would go beyond that.
