With the Supreme Court poised to overturn or substantially curtail Roe v. Wade, demonstrators young and old gathered on March 8 at the University of California’s Berkeley campus to demand the legal right to abortion. The protest was in response to a national call for action by the new movement, riseup4abortionrights.org. The march started in Sproul Plaza and ended in MLK Civic Center Plaza where organizers announced: "This was just the beginning! Next national day of action is April 9. Join us!"
