We protest out in front of the Fairfield High School. Youth are milling about in large crowds in front of the school. We are across the street with our banners and loud speakers, urging them to join us, come to Sacramento May 9th.

Their reaction is positive and curious. We invite them to join our march at 4:00pm from the courthouse to the Bank of America - the tax cheater who got a TRILLION dollar bailout, had a 4.4 billion dollar profit, and has a branch in their town.

We get press! Amy is interviewed by the local paper and we make front page news!
