Hundreds protest the signing of the state budget in Green Bay June 27

Hundreds came out to denounce and protest the signing of Wisconsin’s 2011-13 budget by Scott Walker June 27 in Green Bay.The $66 billion two-year budget slashes funding for public schools, the University of Wisconsin System and local governments, expand taxpayer support for private voucher schools and cut taxes for corporations and banks. “This budget will result in a major loss to the quality of life for the people of Wisconsin by crippling economic support systems for middle income and working class families,” said Phil Neuenfeldt, President of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO in a June 26 statement. “We are seeing the deepest cuts to education, health care and local communities ever passed in state history, at a time when we should be investing in our state and its people.” Protests and resistance across the state continue to oppose the attempted union-busting and anti-people attacks by Walker and his banking, corporate and Pentagon backers.
