Twenty years ago this week an estimated 50,000 people turned out at the State Capitol to protest the state’s newly passed income tax. Any way you look at it, this was an amazing turnout. Compare it to last week’s paltry crowd of 75 (and that’s being generous) at the Occupy Hartford Wall Street rally at Bushnell Park.
We’ve pulled some vintage video out of the Channel 3 archives from October 5th, 1991 featuring Lowell Weicker, John Larson, Tom Scott, John Rowland, Miles Rapaport, Jonathan Pelto, Brad Davis, and others. There are also two women we cannot identify. If you know who they are, let us know.
