Wisconsin Librarians on the March


Greetings Fellow Librarians, Library Staff, & Library Students!

Over 2 dozen of us marched on Saturday, Feb 26, 2011. 60-plus marched last Sunday (March 6, 2011). This Saturday we will increase our numbers and march again! Let's join the Farmer Labor Tractorcade!

WHAT: Librarian Protest March
WHEN: This Saturday, March 12, 2011. 11:30am
WHERE: Madison Public Library, Central Library steps. 201 W. Mifflin St. Madison, WI

We will gather at 11:30am on the MPL steps and march to the Wisconsin State Capitol where we will march around the square. Keep those clever library signs coming!

Madison's Mayor Dave Cieslewicz joined us this past weekend in support of libraries and library workers. All those who marched with us were treated to a free box lunch by LMN O'Pies:

Take a look at the new American Libraries article by Milwaukee Public Library's Audrey Barbakoff:

This is history in the making folks! JOIN US!

Farmer Labor Tractorcade
Event Date: Saturday, March 12, 2011 - 12:00pm - 2:00pm

Event Website on FaceBook.
Taking place at: Wisconsin State Capitol
Madison, WI

Sponsored by Family Farm Defenders, Wisconsin Farmers Union and Land Stewardship

Farmers from across the dairyland will bring tractors and solidarity to the WI capitol to fight for labor rights and a just state budget. Rural communities will be disproportionately hurt by the cuts to education and BadgerCare, and farmers in Wisconsin stand with state workers, and all working and middle class
families in the state.

All farmers and eaters welcome and encouraged to come!
