Start Us Up USA campaign to stage demonstration on the National Mall in DC

The AED- and AEM-backed Start Us Up USA campaign, which we noted on the Exchange Blog last week, will stage a massive demonstration on the National Mall in Washington, DC this Wednesday to call lawmakers' attention to the state of the heavy equipment and construction industries, which the organization says are in a full-blown depression. According to a joint AED/AEM/Start Us Up USA release:

To make their point, equipment dealers, manufacturing representatives, labor leaders and others will stage a rally of the Start Us Up USA! campaign on the National Mall against a backdrop of idle construction equipment and surrounded by a sea of 5,500 orange flags - each one representing 100 jobs already lost in this industry. The equipment caravan, displaying Start Us Up USA! banners and waving orange flags, will parade the major streets surrounding the National Mall and Capitol Hill throughout mid-day after cruising past the campaign rally in progress.
