March on the Capitol

Today we marched again on the capitol to demonstrate for our right of collective bargaining.  Our new governor wants to dismantle our rights and many services in Wisconsin, a state known for a history of progressive politics.
Students, teachers, fireman, state workers and union members have been marching for a week now to stand and represent for our rights.
The governor has threatened to begin terminating state employees.
He wants to privatize the University so students can't afford it.

 He's telling us he needs to balance the budget.

It's not really about the money.

It's about collective bargaining.  Education.  Health care.
Handing our rights over to the corporations.

The union has agreed to the budgetary adjustments but
that is not enough.  He wants to take away our rights to
bargain for anything but salary

People from all over the world have been sending pizza to the protesters from Ian's Pizza
Thank you everyone.  It was delicous!
