Posted by: Daniel Curtis - bio | email

PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) - It was one of the largest protest of the year.

Millions of people marched on Washington D.C. to protest everything from over the top spending to healthcare Saturday.

A group of river region residents made the trip and returned early Sunday.

After a long bus ride the protest express is back home. "It was long, but boy we had a lot of people show up," says Michael Peters.

The group went to Washington looking for answers and now that they're back they say the trip was a success.

"It was fantastic, it was exciting, to know that they American people have risen up and said enough, they sleeping giants have awaken and we are here," says Susan Johnson.

Over a million people arrived in nation's capital for Saturdays rally, protesting a range of issues.

"I'm sick and tired of what's going on in Washington and decided it's time for a change," says Bo Owens.

Even though this trip may be over these protesters say their message is one that won't be stopped.

"Individuals that just pool together their resources can make a difference because the momentum behind the movement just starts gathering more and more people," says Rick Barber.

The group will hold a get together Tuesday Sep 15, at Déjà Vu Billiards from 5:30 to 7:30.
