Three of us went to another solidarity rally on Saturday, part of the so-called “Rally to Save the American Dream” organized by This crowd was much smaller and less energetic, and the only media attention garnered was in relation to a small Tea Party counter protest across the street from the Capitol building.

Our banner was a simple, stencil and spray-paint rendition of the IWW slogan “An Injury to One is an Injury to All.” This old phrase was actually popular amongst the demonstrators, our sign being just one of many. Working class solidarity is not forgotten in America.

  2. I am so proud of all of you. Thanks for being there. JK
