GA rally against SB 469 gets great news coverage

We almost forgive the mainstream media for lowballing the crowd estimate (as they always do) at Saturday's rally in Atlanta against SB469, the un-American, anti-worker bill to criminalize picketing and let the government interfere with workers' right to choose union membership.

The Associated Press also picked up the story:
Union members protesting Saturday say the bill unfairly criminalizes non-violent demonstrations. Teamsters union members, the Southern Center for Human Rights and the Sierra Club are among groups that organized the protest.
As did the Atlanta Journal Constitution, CBS News and other local media.

Hats off to our brothers and sisters at Local 728 who made this happen!
