Just a quick note-
A twitter friend has offered high speed access just off the square of the Capitol. I’m hauling a lot of gear over and hope to at minimum do audio from there. If I find some tech-savvy youth-maybe some video too. You’ll get updates on this via facebook/twitter/here.
At 5pm last night there was a big ruckus in the Assembly. Repubs. said the vote was at 5. Showed up early. Voted by voice. Dems ran in at 5 yelling to stop the vote. Repubs proceeded with their voice vote in favor of an Assembly version of the Budget Reform Bill. Pete Barka of Kenosha yelled at them mercilessly. The vote was rescinded. Very dramatic. Google dane101 for a link to this now.
High of 17 degrees today and sunny with 8mph wind. Wear your hat.
Twitter is the place to get updates on this. If you do not do twitter, go to the URL search.twitter.com and search for #wiunion or #notmywi or #solidaritywi and you’ll learn what’s up moment to moment.
These are people who are often tweeting about rally events as they occur: @millbot @news3jessica @news3david @melissaryan – and more that I just can’t think of right now!
Estimated 50,000 will show and garbage is already a problem on the square. Please bring your own bags and tote your garbage out. It’s a big rally.
I didn’t have a chance to confirm whether Sarah Palin is coming or not. If you know more on this, please comment or tweet me at my twitter handle: bluecheddar1.
Must dash. I’ll try to be good about putting up at least fast notes like this throughout the day, if not photos. Bless you and keep you, Progressives. Its’ a good day.
