Wisconsin Day! Rally to Kick-off a Week of Action
February 11th is the one-year anniversary of the day Walker and his funders launched their all out assault against everything that makes Wisconsin a great place to live, work, and learn. It also marks the anniversary of the day the people of Wisconsin rose up in mass protest to not only “kill the bill,” but also to demand an end to the many economic and social injustices present in our society.
On February 11th, 2012 the Wisconsin Wave hosted a rally to mark a new holiday- Wisconsin Day! Speakers will addressed the challenges and opportunities the grassroots social movement born a year ago faces moving forward.
The rally will also served as a launching point for a “No More Stolen Elections” campaign which will work to ensure future elections are free of voter suppression and the intentional manipulation of election results.
Speakers included: Peter Barca, State Assembly Rep.; Mahlon Mitchell, Professional Firefighters of WI; John Nichols, Capital Times & The Nation; Charity Schmidt, UW-Madison TAA; Leland Pan, UW-Madison student government, Adam Porton, Wisconsin Wave and the Liberty Tree Foundation; John Peck, Family Farm Defenders and others!
This event was part of an Anniversary Week of Action to celebrate the Wisconsin Uprising.
