Wisconsin Solidarity Protest, Denver Capitol 2-22-2011

I attended the Wisconsin Solidarity protest at the Denver capitol building – what an incredible event!

Huge turnout, at least a thousand union supporters of all ages. There was a tiny counter-protest… it was so cute!!

Look – even St. Reagan said that being in a union is a basic human right.

    Great pics! I’m glad to have met you at the rally yesterday; always good to put a name and face together. I’ve been enjoying Freerange Longmont since I moved to Louisville from Michigan four months ago. Keep up the outstanding work, and hope to meet up with you again.

    Thanks, Doug, I might use a couple of these photos; they’re much better than mine and my husband is in at least one of them.

    By all means. You can get the high-res versions from the FLICKR website.

    Perhaps some FRL visitor might like to see the Denver event from the perspective of the “other side” – mine:

    In Wisconsin, it’s really just a power grab,
    by Paul Krugman(Nobel Prize-winning economist)

    “…right-wing ideologues have exploited crises to push through an agenda that has nothing to do with resolving those crises, and everything to do with imposing their vision of a harsher, more unequal, less democratic society.”

    “Union-busting and privatization remain GOP priorities, and the party will continue its efforts to smuggle those priorities through in the name of balanced budgets.”

    It is too bad the hour and half rally only lasted a half hour. The rest of the time was spent watching the anti union folks on the sidewalk have their rally that lasted the whole time.

    Um. Wrong. I was there the whole time. Gee Tom, how about you post using a real name next time. What is it with you heroic righties? Why do you always hide your faces? Pretty weak tea. Makes your comments irrelevant.
