wisconsin to washington

ever since the start of the Wisconsin uprising we’ve wondered, “Have we started a national movement?” or “”Will our movement just fizzle out?”

Well, we show no signs of fizzling in Wisconsin—and all across the country people have begun to protest the growing influence of big money in politics at the same time that income inequality is growing. Many of us think the current political impasse is caused by far

right Republicans who do not represent ordinary citizens and do not care about the public good. We think the opinion of the majority of Americans is being ignored in Washington. So we are taking our fight there. (Please spread the word via the poster I designed. You can download a printable pdf at http://www.scherpelz.com/contact)

Can you travel to Washington, DC where an October 6 concert, rally and protest will kick off a powerful stand for peace, economic justice, human rights and a healthy environment? The date marks the 10th anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan and the beginning of the 2012 federal austerity budget. Many participants have committed to staying in Freedom Plaza for as long as they can, with the intention of making it the Tahrir Square/Cairo/Madison of our nation. Can you stand up and demand that America’s resources be invested in human needs and environmental protection instead of war and exploitation?
