Illinois Democratic Candidate for Governor, Rod Blagojevich supports Telemundo employees who are seeking union representation and respect by NBC for their decision to join a union. While anti-war demonstrations took place on Saturday, October 26th across the country and around the world in major cities, including Chicago, the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) and the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) held a rally for respect in front of NBC Towers in Chicago, protesting the inequality at NBC against Telemundo Broadcasters who have recently become employees of NBC. Over 200 people rallied and chanted both in English and Spanish: "What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now!", In spanish: "Si, se puede!" ("We can do it!"), "El pueblo unido, Jamas sera vencido"("The people united, will never be defeated"), In English: "Respect!", "2,4,6,8 NBC Discriminates" and "2,4,6,8 NBC Negotiate!" A Telemundo truck drove by honking in support for the rally.
