Mass Rallies Held Across US

American demonstrators have rallied in cities across the country to protest a plan by Wisconsin governor to curb the power of public sector unions.

At least 70,000 demonstrators flooded the square around the Wisconsin Capitol on Saturday. Thousands more rallied in state capitals across the country as well as other cities, Reuters reported.

The demonstrations protested at the Wisconsin's State Assembly's approval of a budget measure on Friday. The measure, proposed by Republican Governor Scott Walker, strips public sector unions of most collective bargaining rights.'
