Back on the Strike Lines

John Edwards returns to the picket lines on Tuesday, when he will join a Manhattan rally for striking writers and Broadway stagehands.

Edwards joined pickets in front of NBC studios in Burbank earlier this month.

His campaign says that Edwards will address the crowd and talk about “our country’s growing econimic divide and his bold vision to restore the promise of the American Dream to hardworking Americans and their children.”

Also scheduled to attend the rally at Washington Square Park are Rep. Jerry Nadler, Tim Robbins, Michael Emerson, Joe Pantoliano, Colin Quinn, Aasif Mandvi, Tony Goldwyn, Evan Handler and Gilbert Gottfried.

The theme of the rally is, “We’re all in this together, and we demand a fair deal!”
