From Dave Felice:
Members of the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) gather at the Housing and Urban Development offices in downtown Denver to protest the closure of the federal government. The workers rallied at the same time a so-called historic agreement was being made public in Washington DC. AFGE represents several thousand employees at federal agencies in the Denver area, including HUD, Social Security, and the Environmental Protection Agencies. Representatives of the Denver Area Labor Federation and other unions, including Mail Handlers and Communications Workers, along with Jobs with Justice and the Colorado Progressive Coalition, joined the rally.
