On Thursday July 15 over 1,000 nurses protested in front of Gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman's house to make a stand against her attacks on the California nurses Association.

This event was a part of the California nurses forum, and since Meg Whitman was invited and didn't attend, the nurses took it to her house. Lately Whitman has stated she will take away rules that govern how nurses are assigned. Currently the ratio of nurse to patient is high and it will get higher if Meg Whitman is elected as Governor of California. Whitman has also stated on numerous television ads that she thinks the government is to big and she has plans to make it smaller, which would mean thousands of additional lay-offs during an economic depression that has lasted since Bush left the White House.
