Just home from the 99Rise March in Sacramento.

Needless to say, we're exhausted. We took Amtrak up to Sacramento to meet with the marchers for the final rally. We had a really good turnout. People car pooled from San Diego, L.A., the Bay Area, pretty much all over California. The Wolf Pac (TYT) was there, as was Dolores Huerta (UFW), MoveOn, "Fractivists," and others. Sad to say, after marchers walked all the way from L.A. to Sacramento, THEY CLOSED THE CAPITOL building even though it was supposed to stay open until 5:00 so we were barred from entering OUR building. They had the CHP on horseback there, the lookouts on top of the capitol building itself, a pretty good police presence but all was peaceful and people were well behaved. They were planning on staying the night at the Capitol Park but I just heard about an hour ago that the CHP were coming in and threatening to arrest them.

I'll post pictures and some video tomorrow.

ETA: Corrected speeling.
