After two days of upbeat speeches about an end to AIDS, impatient activists took to the microphones and streets Tuesday to protest the sluggish pace of research, persistent barriers to care and funding, and President Obama's decision not to appear in person at the weeklong AIDS 2012 conference.
One idea is to establish a "tiny tax" on Wall Street financial transactions, also known as a "Robin Hood" tax, said Jennifer Flynn.
The first way to keep the promise about ending AIDS "is that you show up," she said. "Sending a video message is not showing up. And it's not leadership from the United States of America. We are asking the president to please engage and make AIDS a priority."
