Today, June 30, a diverse array of poor and working people came out to protest a fundraiser at the Milwaukee Athletic Club for racist Republican politicians Scott Walker and Alberta Darling. The people demanded living wage jobs now, the overturning of the illegal union-busting bill, taxing of the rich, a moratorium on foreclosures & evictions and that the banks, corporations and the Pentagon should pay for the economic crisis among other demands.
