Tax Day Mega-Rally Gets Major Press

S.F. Tax-Break Protesters Target Twitter 

The popular tech news site–Recode–covered our Twitter protest. The story features great photos and video.

Google-bus-blocking anarchists aren’t the only ones targeting the tech industry’s big names in San Francisco these days: The unions are taking their tech complaints to the streets, too.

On Tax Day Tuesday, hundreds of nurses, janitors, 911 dispatchers and others gathered at City Hall and marched the few blocks to Twitter’s midtown headquarters to protest the company’s payroll tax break.

For the great photos and video, go to Recode.
