Nova Scotians who think the Liberal government is ignoring their concerns are planning to rally outside the legislature today as MLAs return for the start of the spring session.

Organizers of the Nova Scotians Rise Up protest say the rally isn’t aimed at any one issue but will give protesters a chance to speak out on a range of concerns including health care, education, mental health services and the environment.

A Facebook page for the rally says the government will be forced to listen to those who have not been heard if they come together as Nova Scotians.

By this morning, 685 people had posted they were attending while 2,900 said they were interested.
