Anchorage Solidarity Rally
Under the drizzly cloudy, dark sky's of Anchorage today. Union workers turned out, to stand together for Solidarity. We turned out to stand together for all workers rights, union or not. We turned out for workplace safety rules. We stood together for fair wages.
Workers Rights Are Human Rights, and lots of other slogans were hand written on signs, that we held while cars stopped and went at the busy intersection of 36 avenue and Denali Street.
Those of us that grew up union,. Those of us who work union. Those of us that fought for Civil Rights, we stood on the corner on the blood that has been shed, for the rights we have, wondering if ours will be next.
