Health Care Reform Rally, IV

Hartford, CT, 9/22/09

Along with the many home made signs at the rally there were also printed signs distributed by a variety of organizations. Among the groups represented were the New England health care workers of SEIU, MoveOn, HealthCareForAmericaNow, and the AFSCME, AFL-CIO. Probably more that I didn't spot.

A reporter and cameraman for the local ABC News affiliate spent about fifteen minutes at the rally and interviewed one of the organizers, from AFSCME. There didn't seem to be any coverage by print media, though a number of people were shooting stills and video for the organizing groups. One conspicuously missing element was any hint of counter demonstration. There was no sign anywhere of anti-reform sentiment.
