It was a dense sea of red as members of United Teachers Los Angeles marched from L.A. Unified's Beaudry headquarters to Pershing Square this afternoon. There they were joined by latecomers for a rally at the square before moving on to the Ronald Reagan State Building.

The teachers union is marching in opposition to potential cuts in education funding as part of the state's mid-year budget adjustment. When the march was originally announced, the union's attention was also directed at LAUSD, which had said it would be cutting 2,300 jobs. The district has since said it will not be making those mid-year cuts.
