Families from around the country joined actors Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey on June 4 for the “Green Our Vaccines Rally” in Washington DC. The rally was sponsored by Talk About Curing Autism (TACA), Generation Rescue, HEAL Foundation and Moms Against Mercury. Attendees were not protesting vaccines, rather they were asking for potentially dangerous chemicals to be removed from vaccines.
The event began with a march through the streets of the nation’s capitol and concluded at a rally site in front of the Capitol Building. Following the march, a press conference was held featuring remarks from three doctors and environmental activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr., as well as McCarthy and Carrey. Ms. McCarthy concluded her remarks by asking the rally participants to turn and hold up photographs of their children for the TV cameras set up behind them, while “Change is Gonna Come” by Sam Cooke played in the background.
