I attended this rally today, because I see a frightening effort by the large corporate interests, buoyed up by the Citizens United decision that a corporation has the same 1st amendment rights as a citizen, to crush any efforts by any workers, unionized or not to make any demands on employers. Serfdom lies ahead if average people don't fight back.
