Ventura County Star

Nurses who support a tax on Wall Street transactions to help fund public health held a demonstration Thursday morning in Ventura, waving signs with slogans like “Too big to fail and getting even bigger” in support of the national campaign.

Some of the 14 local nurses and their supporters who showed up at the corner of Victoria Avenue and Telephone Road said the turnout was small because it was just organized this week as part of a series of rallies by the California Nurses’ Association and National Nurses United.
