Feb. 24– Video excerpts from the Working People’s Day of Action rally on the steps of the Federal Courthouse, 2 Niagara Square, Buffalo, NY. Several community leaders active in the labor and civil rights movement mobilized for a rally to demand an end to a rigged economy and a corrupt political system. More than 200 people attended the 90 minute event. Hundreds of demonstrators gathered out in front of the Federal Courthouse in Downtown Buffalo for the “Working People’s Day of Action” mobilization effort to bring attention to the plight of the American worker. The day of action effort took place two days before the US Supreme Court readies to hear Janus v. AFSCME Council 31, a case that would rig the system even more against working people by taking away their freedom to have strong unions and their right to have a voice on the job.
