Event announcement, Tuesday February 12th, in Madison

. . . Who buys the elections? Who bribes the politicans? Who writes the anti-worker and anti-environment laws? First and foremost, the answer is the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its state affiliate, the Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC).

Join Dennis Kucinich on the evening of Tuesday, February 12th, the fighting progressive from Ohio, former mayor of Toledo, seven term congressman, and twice presidential candidate. as he joins us in launching a national campaign to "Shut the Chamber!"


On Wednesday, February 13th, Governor Walker is having his annual "performance review" in front of his real bosses.

No, not the people of Wisconsin. The corporate lobby group Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC), an affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

[div class="excerpt" style="margin-left: 1em; border: 2px solid #6600cc; border-radius: 0.4615em; box-shadow: 6px 6px 6px #999999;"]February 13th is the day that WMC holds its traditional annual lobby day. It is time to end this tradition. It's time for a Wisconsin Day of Action against WMC.

We call on Wisconsinites to turn out in the hundreds to protest WMC throughout the day:

9am Unwelcoming Committee Picket
Lunch Hour (Noon) Picket
5pm Mass Rally to Shut the Chamber, Shut WMC!

We ask organizations, unions, and community leaders to contact us to endorse this day of action.
We call on people of good will to organize their own non-violent protests. We respect a diversity of non-violent tactics.

It is time to clean the house of government and remove the corporate lobbyists from the temple of democracy. It is time to shut the chamber.
