As the Wisconsin State Journal puts it: "Union members rallied outside the Wisconsin Capitol on Saturday to mark the anniversary of the Republican-led Legislature's passage of a hotly-disputed measure that stripped most public union workers of collective bargaining rights."
How do they know who's a union member? There was a huge crowd, including lots of children (and dogs!) on this sunny warm Saturday:
They couldn't have all been union members. But I saw lots of generic printed signs and flags, and there were massive trucks painted with "Teamsters" and "Boilermakers" imagery.
Speaking of imagery, here's a woman holding a sign depicting Governor Scott Walker's head emerging from a hairy asshole. The sign reads "Buttholes for Billionaire$:
Another sign depicts Scott Walker peeing on the words "Public Employees." Walker has a Hitler mustache and the words read "Gov. Dick Tater":
(Is this sexist, an insult to all men, to call one man a "dick"?)
The socialists were there:
They want to tax the rich.
There were puppeteers... who had trouble wrangling the papier maché Scott Walker in the March wind:
There was this young woman aligning Governor Walker with murderers Ed Gein and Jeffrey Dahmer:
"Wisconsin regrets Ed Gein, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Scott Walker." Oh, there's always so much to regret. Grisly mass murders... balancing the state budget...
... spending a beautiful Saturday photographing the deeply aggrieved.
