Mary Chapin Carpenter:
Of Rage Against The Machine with a story about why he had to go to Madison. It made me feel warm all over!
Maria Muldaur with Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks:
CNN didn’t cover the “We Are Wisconsin” rallies held across America today — but they did do a piece noting the Tea Party’s first anniversary. Your librul media!
Activists have staged protests at more than 40 bank branches across the country in protest at executive bonuses and cuts in public services.
UK Uncut said demonstrators set up creches, laundries, school classrooms, libraries, homeless shelters, drama clubs, walk-in clinics, youth centres, job centres and leisure centres at branches of RBS, NatWest and Lloyds across the country.
In other words, all the services that are being cut under the new austerity plan.
At midday in Islington, north London, 50 activists set up a laundry in an RBS branch in reaction to alleged council moves to cut services to the elderly, including a much-needed laundry service.
They set up washing lines, clothes horses, buckets for handwashing and a team of window cleaners on the outside. The protest was attended by over 15 pensioners and local Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn.
This could get interesting.
I had a patient cry yesterday.
Young guy with several kids.
Working-class. Uninsured. No sick time.
Will need hospitalization for a week.
Will not make rent.
We collected to make his rent.
What the fuck have we come to, folks?
Go, unions. Make these bastards who have created this fiasco come to their knees.
Do it for the rest of us.
