Farmers circle the Capitol on their tractors--TRACTORCADE!

The Republicans in Wisconsin passed a union-busting bill a few days ago, but the pro-labor rallies haven't stopped. Today's was the biggest yet. At least 100,000 people came to the Capitol, including farmers from all over the state. They brought their tractors and drove them around the Capitol in solidarity with laborers. It was a tractorcade!

 

Susan Sarandon, Tony Shaloub, and Jesse Jackson gave speeches, and the Wisconsin 14 came home to a huge welcome.
