Fishermen to rally in DC as industry struggles
Kerry, Brown to speak in D.C.
Fishermen from California to New England plan to rally for their struggling industry in Washington next week with an election year message for Congress: helping the fishing industry will save jobs. Organizers expect a roster of lawmakers to speak before about 5,000 commercial and recreational fishermen in a park next to the US Capitol on Wednesday. The crowd is expected to include fishermen from all the Atlantic coast states plus Alaska and California.
