Right-to-work protesters have marched through the packed Super Bowl Village in downtown Indianapolis.

A mix of union members and Occupy protesters from across the state led a rally Saturday that began at the Statehouse before weaving through the crowded pre-game attraction. Speakers at the rally included two state representatives, a state senator and several union workers. Indianapolis Education Association President Ann Wilkins told the crowd of about 75 protesters to remember which legislators voted for right-to-work and vote them out in the November elections.

During the march on the Village, about 75 protesters chanted "Occupy the Super Bowl." Organizers of Saturday's event say that if Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels does sign the bill into law this week, the protests will likely continue.
