Rally Tomorrow in Solidarity With Wisconsin


    From MoveOn.org:

    On Saturday, February 26, at noon local time, we are organizing rallies in front of every statehouse and in every major city to stand in solidarity with the people of Wisconsin. We demand an end to the attacks on worker’s rights and public services across the country. We demand investment, to create decent jobs for the millions of people who desperately want to work. And we demand that the rich and powerful pay their fair share.

    We are all Wisconsin. We are all Americans.

    This Saturday, we will stand together to Save the American Dream. Be sure to wear Wisconsin Badger colors-red and white-to show your solidarity. Sign up today to join in!

    If you’re interested, simply enter your zip code and find the rally nearest you. Or, just click here for the rally in Richmond, at 1 pm, “on the lawn across from US Court of Appeals.” Thanks.

    P.S. Also see the Prince William County Democrats’ statement.

    UPDATE: See the “flip” for a moment of clarity from Faux – yes, Faux!! – “news” on this situation. I mean, if even Faux can figure out this is all politics by Scott Walker et al, then this really isn’t too tough to understand…

      most of the other 50 states are holding rallies at state capitals so why is the AFL holding one in Williamsburg?
