PHOTOS: Protesters march for more AIDS funding

Thousands of people are marching in D.C. to urge for more funding to combat HIV/AIDS. Organizers are proposing a tax on Wall Street to help fund the cause.

Edward Wilson, who was diagnosed with HIV in 1994, traveled from Brooklyn, N.Y. with a group representing Vocal New York, an HIV/AIDS and social justice organization. His protest group, whose members all dressed up as Robin Hood, seek to tax Wall Street in order to stop cuts to domestic and global HIV/AIDS programs.
