  1. Nice rally, speakers and chanting “It’s up to you, Mary Sue” (I may have helped a little in formulating chant! heh) in front of Union and a huge banner backdrop; then march to Fleming to chalk that and similar messages.

    Ian Robinson of LEO, Adri Miller, others spoke. Messages of solidarity with those different from you; spoken words of workers with ugly real-life details of harassment by bosses; etc.

    Nice to be there in person; life is more than weblogging…

  3. We have sweatshops here in Ann Arbor at the UM?
    And they just raised the minimum wage!!
    Wait I work in the sweat shop. I demand $50,000 a year, no $100,000. Down with the sweat shops!
