"In Wisconsin and around our country, the American Dream is under fierce attack. Instead of creating jobs, Republicans are giving tax breaks to corporations and the very rich—and then cutting funding for education, police, emergency response, and vital human services.
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."


You can put in your zip code to see all events in your area and the details. Time to show the tea party radicals what REAL grass roots is all about!

False thread title!

This has nothing to do with so-called "workers rights" and everything to do with unions clinging to their unequal power to use dues money to purchase politicians and power!

The unions are finished..! Finally, they are 100 years out of date. The poor suckers who pay union dues to support the thugs at the top are fools.
This uprising is the end of unions at long last...!

I'm going to be there with some of our local teachers and my friends from our PTA!! We're moms who support our teachers! (and police, and firefighters, and nurses) I just found out some of our church members are bringing a group as well.

This kind of desperation from the tea party shows they know they are done. Reminds me of this famous movie scene.
