I’m Congressman Danny Davis, and of course Illinois has never been as big as Texas. But one thing that we learned in Illinois is that a people united will never be defeated. And I want to commend this coalition which will go down in history as one of the greatest demonstrations for equality, for opportunity, for liberation, and for justice that this world has seen in a long, long time. You inspire and motivate not only yourselves, but you are telling people all over the world that you don’t have to sit back and take it, that all you gotta do is organize your neighbors, organize your friends, organize young people, organize students, and I guarantee you that democracy will prevail every time. Never been in a demonstration this big so I thank you for giving me the opportunity to experience the biggest single demonstration for democracy that I’ve ever had.
