Solidarity Singers video

Postby Shorty » Wed Oct 26, 2016 11:48 am

"If you're ever in Madison, Wisconsin, you'd be wise to go see the Solidarity Singers even if you don't share their politics. They've been singing outside the State Capitol for the past five years and are a great, positive example of social protest. I paid them a visit during my recent trip.

Wisconsin court voids nearly $300K judgment for demonstrators cited for holding signs at state Capitol
http://www.channel3000.com/news/politic ... s/42455592

"A Wisconsin appeals court has voided a nearly $300,000 judgment for demonstrators who were cited for holding signs during massive protests at the state Capitol over Gov. Scott Walker's collective bargaining restrictions in 2011. Six protesters filed a lawsuit alleging state regulations prohibiting displaying a sign without a permit in areas of the Capitol violated clearly established free speech rights. A Dane County judge awarded the protesters $289,812."
