'Now that's what I call a protest!' (voices from LA)

Satuday in Los Angeles
Maybe the best way to convey the excitement of Saturday's march and rally in Los Angeles is to hear it from the participants themselves. Here are some comments from Facebook about the event:
Ric Saenz
Thank you L.A. for standing in "SOLIDARITY" with WI. I had the privilege of meeting some of the L.A. union members that came to Madison to support us. I was moved by their presence. Some of the folks that I met were Richard Wicklund, Polly & Peggy. I stay in touch with them as much as possible. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!!

Yvonne Wheeler
