This morning was the pro-education rally at the Capitol, organized by savetxschools.org. It was a great experience - not as big as the March for Women's Rights I attended in DC, but definitely the largest rally I've been a part of since.

Even better, the folks over at SXSW publicized the event, and I know at least a few people in town for live music also came out to the rally.
Also, the Austin-American Statesman has a lovely photo gallery up; here are a few of my own additions:
