" Pro-union rally takes place at UCM"
Warrensburg - Scott Ciafullo, Missouri president of the American Federation of Teachers, said he stood "at ground zero" in Madison, Wisc., when unions rallied against Gov. Scott Walker and state legislators targeting collective bargaining for public worker unions.

"I was with 100,000 union brothers and sisters and their families," he said.

Ciafullo spoke at a University of Central Missouri rally that his brother, Stephen Ciafullo, a UCM assistant professor, organized with Students for Political Action to support union workers.

It took them several days to actually report this rally, since it happened Monday like the other rallies across the U.S. What I find interesting is that it was reported only after the Muleskinner, the college newspaper, wrote an article on the rally. The local paper still has no mention of the teacher's rally held on campus a few weeks back, though the Muleskinner did cover it.

I guess I should be pleased that the Daily Star Journal covered the rally at all.
