Tuesday’s recall election in Wisconsin won’t be the end of the road for union organizers and radical leftists. No matter what the outcome is for Walker, Kleefisch, and the others, it appears that Wisconsin’s role as host will continue.
Worker’s World reports that there are widespread actions planned for Wisconsin on June 6, the day after the recall election takes place:
…Fighters from Occupy Wall Street, unions and independent organizations are organizing “Keep It in the Streets” actions to take place in cities statewide on June 6. (occupywi.org) For example, Occupy Milwaukee is sponsoring a rally at Pier Marquette Park in Milwaukee at 5 p.m., followed by a march to the banking district.
The facebook page for the June 6 action; note carefully the list of “endorsers”:
On June 5th we vote. On June 6th we keep it in the streets! Join Occupy Wisconsin and dozens of community allies and labor unions to march on June 6th to make the following demands of our Governor:
1. Repeal Act 10 – Hands off unions and collective bargaining. No cuts to education or Badger Care.
2. Restore the Equal Pay Act – We demand and end to workplace discrimination.
3. Tax the 1% – Hold the banksters and the 1% accountable for their economic crisis, and stop the cuts to working and oppressed people.
We will rally at Pere Marquette Park before marching on Milwaukee’s city hall and banking district. Bring your pots and pans, drums, etc.
