A large diverse crowd of people (we would estimate 500) took part in a rally in Eau Claire yesterday to protest the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. Several scheduled speakers took part in the rally, after which many individuals spoke about their own experiences and how their lives will be affected by this court ruling. 

We shot some live streaming video of the event. We have been having some difficulty with our cell phone streaming setup and sound quality in noisy conditions such as yesterday, and are working on making improvements. It was difficult to hear in the crowd in general  at this rally. I would like to remind our gentle readers that covering events of this type is expensive and that a little more money could make all the difference to expanding our coverage.
