Bernie Sanders spoke to a crowd of thousands of supporters in Springfield, Massachusetts on Saturday afternoon.

As Sanders took to the stage, the enthusiastic crowd took to their feet and cheered him on.

In his speech to the crowd of roughly 6,000 supporters, Sanders touched on ending mass incarceration, creating jobs, rebuilding the middle class and building a campaign for the 99%.

Senator Sanders also touched on foreign policy, saying that the United States should resolve disputes with other countries without going to war.

On education, Sanders said, “in the midst of an educational crisis, we don’t fire teachers, we hire them!”

The Springfield rally was the first of two in Massachusetts, as Bernie Sanders prepares to address a huge rally in Boston tonight.
