Rally To Be Held In Frankfort Against Wisconsin, Indiana Legislation

Kentuckians will rally Saturday in Frankfort in support of protesters in Wisconsin and Indiana, who are fighting legislation they say will hurt labor unions. Similar rallies will be held in state capitals across the nation.

MoveOn.org and several other organizations are promoting the rallies. Keith Rouda with MoveOn hopes the event will show solidarity across the nation among people striving to protect and further unionized labor.

“They’re attacking us all; and we’re very concerned about kind of a nationwide trend that’s happening, because …you know… we’re kind of in support of the folks in Wisconsin, but the same thing or similar things is happening in Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee, New Jersey, Oklahoma, kind of across the nation,” he says.

Through this show of solidarity, Rouda says he hopes to prevent the spread of legislation similar to what is being fought over in Wisconsin.

The destruction of the public and private unions in this Country is disgusting. Thanks to Moveon for fighting for whats left of the middle class.

A VOICE AMONG AND CONTRIBUTING TO THE COLLECTIVE BARGAINING PROGRESSIVE MOVEMENT IS PRICELESS. I CAN NOT IMAGINE A UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WITHOUT THE OPPORTUNITY FOR ITS WORKING CITIZENS TO JOIN AND COLLECTIVELY BARGAIN A FAIR AND JUST LIVING,SAFE, AND WORKING CONDITIONS. THE PRIDE WE UNION MEMBERS HAVE WILL SEND CHILLS UP OUR SPINES. THE GREED AND TOTAL DISREGARD TO THESE PRINCIBLES ARE JUST COLD. LETS STAND STRONG LETS STAND TOGETHER.
