I attended one in Philadelphia. Between 300 and 500 people showed up to stand in solidarity with union workers in Wisconsin. 

A block or so away, another rally was held, organized by World Can't wait protesting the legislation defunding planned parenthood. The demographics of the two groups were strkingly different. Solidarity rally attendees averaged over 50 and male. Planned parenthood supporters were more than 90% femaile and mostly under 30.

The Signs Displayed at the Rally tell the story of the message























As the solidarity was ending, a large crowd of marchers organized by WorldCantWait, supporting Planned parenthood, began entering the park. The signs were different. 





if you attended a rally and have images or videos, use the comment section to post them.
