Protesters in DC to Protest WI GOP Fundraiser

Post by JaneWI on Thu Mar 17, 2011 12:04 pm

Protesters Stream Through Washington to Protest Wisconsin GOP Fundraiser

"Taking the fight from the statehouse in Madison to the nation’s capital, protesters shut down major streets in downtown Washington, D.C. this afternoon as they marched to the White House in protest against a fundraiser for Wisconsin GOP legislators.

Nearly 300 protesters, including Wisconsinites and union members from elsewhere, took to the streets in opposition to a fundraiser hosted by BGR Group, a Washington, D.C. lobbying firm founded by Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour."

Good. I'll bet we will be seeing more and more protesting. Spring is in the air.

I second that and wish these protests were getting more media attention. There are daily protests going on in Indiana, the democrats have fled to Urbana (they left in February), IL and yet, there is nothing to speak of in the news.

Exactly....What about the people protesting in Tennessee....and what about those poor people in Prichard, Alabama that are not getting their pensions.....The news media only portrays....what they want too....because they want to paint a rosy picture.....that everything is ok......I am so sick of the media......and I don't believe anything that they say......

Maybe there could be another discussion thread to cover the different state protests. There is a lot going on with all of them.
