There is a mood of excitement and even euphoria in the air around Madison following the ruling late Friday that found ACT 10 to be unconstitutional. Walking the Dane County Farmers’ Market today at the Capitol while listening to the conversations of other shoppers alerted me once again to the fact that there are many who agree with the working men and women who make up unions.
Looking from the faces of those talking about unions, and then turning my attention to the sunlit Capitol where the anti-democratic actions of police officers continues was a sad reminder of the hill we still must climb. Just because Republicans do not like the message of protestors does not mean they should be ticketed. It sure as hell does not mean we are going to stay quiet!
There is no doubt that we must continue to stay strong, and fight for the progressive causes that are not only just, but are winning in the courts.
Therefore, I urge all those who can be in attendance to join with your fellow union supporters at the Wisconsin State Capitol on Monday, September 17th for a noon sing-a-long in the Capitol Rotunda.
The only permit we need is the First Amendment!
Bring out your progressive ideals, and lets share this moment together.
