    According to some demonstrator’s they received FREE T-Shirts and meals and transportation and $Pay for taking time out of their busy days to “show-their-support”.

    Traffic was disrupted in Downtown L.A. to accomodate the “Tour Buses” which dropped-off them and their picket signs stored in the bins underneath.
