Commentary: March to Irrelevance?

 
(from the Open Newswire): The "Million Worker March" [MWM] came in about 990,000 short on Sunday, October 17th....

The event, which cribbed it's name from Minister Louis Farrakhan's Black nationalist Washington DC rally 10 years ago (which actually live up to it's name, attendance-wise), had been billed by many left wing labor activists as a great turning point for militant US unionists...kinda like a latter-day Flint Sit Down Strike crossed with the Selma to Montgomery march.
