Tobin went on to say: “Los Angeles was a natural choice for the location of the UWS Festival. While participating in an “End the Fed” rally in Little Rock last November, I met an incredible and diverse group of people from all parties; Tea Party, Occupy Arkansas, Students for Liberty, Libertarian, Green, as well as Democrat and Republican. They all were willing to set aside their differences and unite behind the need for electoral reform, to inspire others to peacefully end ballot barriers and create genuinely free elections. That is what Free & Equal and the United We Stand Festival is all about.”
