It was raining and cold and still it felt good to get out and raise some hell against the radical Republican agenda today.
I pieced together this brief video. There are some episodes I didn’t catch in the video, such as the 4th graders who spontaneously began chanting “recall Walker”. [Hold on – Nick Nice caught that! HERE] The fact that the Solidarity Sing Along group struggled to sing loudly enough to match the protesters’ volume. I didn’t capture the way that some protesters close to the troopers could not look at them in the eye, while others could and did so.
The man you’ll see wearing a suit and raising his fist in response to our chanting at the end of the video is @astrodex on twitter.
WORT was able to record and include his confrontational question of Walker in a press conference as well as Walker’s response. AND WORT FM incorporated some of my interview of @astrodex in their Monday-Thursday evening news show, In Our Backyard. Hat’s off to citizen journalist Craig McComb who pulled this news piece together and was super-nice to work with.
