Utahns are mad as hell, and they’re not going to take it any more. And in this case, "it" means the gunked up air.
Thousands rallied Saturday at the State Capitol to express the outrage over the toxic air that routinely settles over the Wasatch Front and to demand change. Estimates on attendance was more than 4,000 people.
The gallery above shows the reactions of some attendees, as captured by tweets, video and pictures. The rally also comes just days after polls show widespread support for more rigorous efforts to curb pollution problems in the state.
