Rallies to protest Florida budget and education cuts

Thousands rally around Fort Myers, Naples, and the state today to protest budget and education cuts proposed by Governor Rick Scott.

This group gathering at Hammond Stadium in south Fort Myers.

Those involved include teachers and members of local unions who say their right to collective bargaining is being violated.

Protestors say those in Tallahassee including the governor need to wake up and support workers' rights and public education.

Those in Collier County also getting in on the action.

Close to one hundred people gathering in Naples tonight to protest change within the state.

Those who attended the rally at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and U-S 41 say they are pushing for better public programs for workers and economic justice for all.
