47. I Was There
I went to the Chicago protest in support of the Wisconsin
unions. It was cold and snowy, but it felt good to be with
other people, who are fed up with what is happening to this
country and the middle class.  

What a wonderful and unexpected surprise, to have our Senator
Dick Durbin, speaking at the rally. William McNary from the
Citizens Action Illinois, was such a POWERFUL speaker, I wish
he could have talked longer AND been seen on more T.V.
stations. He should be interviewed by reporters, as he has a
lot to say about the American worker and the American dream.

Channel 7 NBC news had a video of the protest and had him on.
All the news teams SHOULD have been out there, recording our
protests. I didn't see any others there.

Does anyone know if any other Chicago news station covered the
protest?

I hope that Moveon.org organizes MORE rallies, they say they
plan to, as long a Wisconsin needs our support.

We need to continue having rallies, until the Obama
administration starts STANDING UP to these bullies and
STANDING UP FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE and not the corporations.

What a great day, being able to have my voice heard, that's
what Democracy is all about.

Hopefully, more young people will get involved, and go to a
rally. Protesting is a great civics lesson, as it's democracy
in action,something that you can't learn  in a text book.
