We Are One rally for labor solidarity takes Daley Plaza by storm

Solidarity forever!On April 10th, thousands of workers and workers' rights supporters rallied in Chicago's Daley Plaza to mark the Chicago rally on behalf of the national We Are One campaign organized by the AFL-CIO. In Chicago, three feeder marches of participants converged on the plaza, dwarfing in size and diversity the 2010 Tea Party rally also held in Daley Plaza.

Much of the program focused on solidarity with workers in Wisconsin, though the question of how labor will confront politicians in Illinois and defend and expand workers' rights in Illinois, particularly with Mayor-Elect Rahm "Voldemort" Emanuel waiting in the wings, remains one that the Illinois labor movement has yet to address.
