3. Surprisingly good reaction at the Woodland Hills, CA WE ARE ONE
I live just as close to the UCLA rally which I'm sure was much bigger but thought they would need some support in suburban/repuke-ish Valley burb of Woodland Hills. There were prob 50 protestors on the corner of Topanga Canyon & Ventura Blvd and I was surprised at how many honks, thumbs ups, peace signs we got! Didn't really get any ranting teabaggers or anything. Very pleasant and nice folks at the rally!
