Support Wisconsin Teachers Rally Announcement

Noted in the comments by “Me,” and also forwarded from retirees Mike Ruggeri (and Jackie Kirley) and posted at their request:

Rally to Save the American Dream

(The rally will be held in all 50 states. In Chicago, the rally will be tomorrow, Saturday, at 12:00 PM at the State of Illinois Building.)

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.

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!

  1. I was there today with my teenage son. There were a LOT of people, although I can’t really get a sense of a real count. What’s happening in WI is awe-inspiring!
