Minneasota AFL-CIO calls rally for this Tuesday at state capital in support of Wisconsin workers

Rally in St. Paul Tuesday in solidarity with Wisconsin workers

18 February 2011 ST. PAUL - The Minnesota AFL-CIO has called a rally Tuesday at the state Capitol to show solidarity with workers demonstrating in Wisconsin against Governor Scott Walkers attack on collective bargaining rights.

The rally will start at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 22, in the rotunda of the state Capitol.

Some 250 miles away in Madison, Wisconsin residents have occupied the Capitol building and surrounding streets to protest Walkers plan to take away the right to a union from nearly all public service workers. Democratic lawmakers have left the state in protest to prevent a vote on the measure.

Workers, high school and college students, community members, religious groups and concerned citizens have dropped their daily lives to rally against Gov. Scott Walkers Draconian attacks on middle-class jobs and his proposal to strip Wisconsin teachers, nurses, social workers and other public employees of their collective bargaining rights, the Minnesota AFL-CIO said. Its time for Minnesotans to stand in solidarity with them.
