Education protestors head to Sacramento

FRESNO, Calif. Several hundred people boarded buses Wednesday morning in Northwest Fresno, marking the end of a 48-day march throughout California.

The 360-mile protest trek included six core marchers who say they braved the rain and heat to protest cuts to public education, public health and public safety.

The core group met with hundreds of Californians in the Central Valley as they walked from Bakersfield to Sacramento. The group from Central Fresno is meeting with thousands expected at the state capitol.

The rally is believed to be one of the largest demonstrations in Sacramento in years.
