I Thought America Valued Freedom Of Assembly. So... What's Happening Here?

When it comes to speaking out against unfairness and unemployment, and standing up for voters and women's rights, this awesomely diverse crowd knows exactly what it's doing. I could feel their sense of solidarity throughout the video, and when you get to 4.08 in, you'll see that they're clearly making an impact. That, my friends, is what we refer to as "rad."
