You might RECALL that we are trying to oust our Governor here in Wisconsin. If you RECALL, there have been massive, and steady protests which began just a month after he took office last year. I RECALL spending a lot of time documenting those protests and rallies. Today, the 60-day drive to collect 540,000 or so signatures ended with the delivery of ONE MILLION signatures. Game on!

The crowd starts filling in the room at the Monona Terrace Convention Center Expo hall

This is Wisconsin, so we have (free) beer while we collect more window signs and add our names to another banner.

The eviction notice is signed by the usual "union thugs", "parasites", "greedy public workers", you know, our neighbors.

I notice that THIS TIME the media paid attention. They could not be bothered last winter/spring.

In the crowd it was pretty thick; filled to the brim with happy protesters.

Viewed from above you get a sense of the crowd. It was shaping up to be a fine party!

Sayonara, Walker. Did you hear us all the way out in New York at your fund raiser?
