1. Well, here's something from Providence, RI....
Hundreds rally to 'Save American Dream'
March in solidarity with Wisconsin colleagues
Reporting by: Marilyn Schairer

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) - Hundreds rallied on the steps of the State House in Providence Saturday as they stood behind their fellow protestors from Wisconsin.

The Rhode Island Teacher's Union marched to show support for their Wisconsin colleagues vying to keep their collective bargaining rights and to preserve the American dream.

"We're not gonna let them take away collective bargaining from us...it is time for every worker and every person in America to stand up and fight corporate greed," urged one protestor Saturday.

The rally was part of a national effort organized by MoveOn.org which spanned across all 50 state capitals.
