Healthcare Union Opposed to Race Rally
By Deborah Runcie
Kingston, NY – In response to ongoing racial tensions at the Kingston High School in Ulster County, New York, a controversial radio host says he will sponsor a white power rally on Saturday at noon outside of the high school.
People throughout the country who are opposed to the demonstration, say they will hold their own private counter-rallies. The 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East, which is the largest union on the east coast, representing over 265,000 health care professionals, say they will be attending an event aimed at promoting peace.
