Fri Jul 16 2010 (Updated 07/19/10)Nurses Protest at Gubernatorial Candidate Meg Whitman's Home
Fri Jul 16 2010 (Updated 07/19/10)Protest and Rally: Nurses Fight Back Against Whitman Attacks
Nurses in California say that Meg Whitman's election would threaten their meal and rest breaks and put patient care in jeopardy. They decided to take to the streets with a thousand nurses after Whitman mailed letters and fliers to nurses' homes telling them not to believe statements made by the California Nurses Association (CNA).
The CNA, along with other union leaders, say that gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman's agenda would punish the middle class and push the state deeper into recession. They say that Whitman's plans would cut 40,000 state government jobs, dramatically reducing public employee pensions, deregulating industry and cutting welfare benefits.
The day of action started with over 1,100 people chanting in protest in front of Whitman's Atherton home and ended with a rally at Cañada College. At the college nurses were greeted by community members who stand in support of the nurses' position including the Raging Grannies. Speakers urged nurses to stay strong in their fight against what is being called "the Whitman attack".
