Anti-Walker Rally Photos Madison, WI | February 19, 2011
Estimates range from 60-70,000 today. It was a beautiful sunny day where those fighting against Walkers power grab and union-busting tactics protested with a fraction of Koch Brothers funded tea party followers, which I could comfortably estimate at around 150 people. One of those people was waving a sign saying "Union workers are scum" to the crowd while he was protected by several police officers, who belong to unions.

It was certainly the largest turnout so far in my estimation and based that I have been to every rally day since last week. The crowds were friendly and passionate.

Heres a sample of some of the rally participants:

7. The blindfolded Lady Forward got me.
I have walked by that statue so many times.

Also like "Day 5 of How Many It Takes".

Students and young people, if you are reading this, I love and admire you all.

Also, to the guy who had his iPad set up with the "Imperial Walker" clip and was holding it up and chanting " The Rebels defeated the Imperial Walker and so can we"~ I love you, man!

10. Hey ZZ
great photos - so many photo ops there, aren't there?

I have just been taking my pocket camera along, so I don't have to lug so much stuff, but here are a couple of snapshots from last night, just as the rally was about to begin. DAMN, this can make me feel patriotic!
