#NotFoolingUs: Sparse Turnout For Teachers Union Anti-DeSantis Protest In Miami

Based on attendance and online viewership, an anti-Ron DeSantis protest organized by the United Teachers of Dade (UTD), the Broward Teachers Union (BTU) and the American Federation Of Teachers (AFT) was a complete dud. The protest, dubbed “Not Fooling Us, was held Saturday morning at the County Government Center in downtown Miami. The protest featured guests such as AFT president Randi Weingarten, UTD president Karla Hernandez-Mats and BTU president Anna Fusco.

Photos of the event posted on social media show a sparse crowd made up of Union representatives and teachers. A livestream on Facebook boasted a meager 11 viewers for most of the event. It looks like most south Florida teachers, parents and students were the ones not “fooled” into attending the protest.
