A new farm and garden supply store on the West Side of Providence has become a source of neighborhood controversy. Residents rallied Sunday in support of the business called Cluck!.
About a hundred people sipped coffee and munched on scones at the Sunday morning rally. They were there to support a new store that aims to supply small growers and chicken farmers in the city. Community member Alice Danahy says the storefront, which used to be an abandoned gas station, was an eyesore.
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse got a crowd of thousands chanting and cheering Sunday at a rally on the National Mall in Washington focused on climate change.
Whitehouse says there are only two ways to move climate change legislation: show Congress how out of step it is with the American public, and encourage the president to get serious on the issue.
When Whitehouse told the crowd that special interest owned Washington and it was up to the people to take it back, the crowd went wild. That’s something Whitehouse says is easier done than revving up his fellow members of Congress.
