Just blocks away from the US Capitol and in front of the building that Wisconsin's governor has an office in DC, several hundred people showed up to show their support for the workers in Wisconsin. I'll be posting photos, more video, and a in depth write up about today's event soon, but I wanted to share the video the speech Rep. Donna Edwards gave right away. She spoke extremely passionately about how we need to stand up for workers' rights and sent a message directly to Gov. Scott Walker --- it's time to go. She even lead the crowd in chant of "hey hey, ho ho, Scott Walker has got to go."
After her speech, I briefly spoke to Edwards and she pointed out that this isn't just about Wisconsin and it certainly isn't just about balancing the budget. Instead, she pointed out that we're seeing the right carryout "a sustained attack on workers all across the country." While Edwards is doing what she can to stand up for the working class, the struggle for workers rights isn't going to be ending anytime soon. I'm therefore very pleased to see so many people joining the fight for the working class.
