Almost half way to Sacramento.

Today they'll reach Visalia and none-other than Lawrence Lessig has joined them. (If you don't know about Lawrence I recommend this Ted video).

They just sent me this photo during the stretch to Visalia.  Lessig in purple shirt.

Here is my interview with Kai Newkirk;

The United Farm Workers have been instrumental in the logistics for the march through the San Joaquin valley.  The March for Democracy was inspired by Cesar Chavez original march to Sacramento

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
