Protesters gather at Grand Canyon to march against shutdown

By Rebecca Lewis. CREATED Oct 9, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Protesters marched at the Grand Canyon on Tuesday, trying to rally support to get the park to open its gates.

Business owners, tourists and even locals were there carrying protest signs to gain attention to the ongoing crisis.

Since the government shutdown last week, tourists have been turned away and employees have been on an unpaid vacation.
