March 28 marked the six month anniversary for Roquette America locking out roughly 240 union workers in Keokuk. Hundreds of people from throughout the Midwest met in the southeast Iowa city over the weekend to stand in solidarity with the union. The event also served as a rallying cry for the working class.
Supporters honked their car horns as more than 400 people marched along Main Street in downtown Keokuk.
The demonstrators marched from the Keokuk Labor Temple to the intersection of 14th and Main and back, carrying signs and chanting.
