Thunda Around the Rotunda
Today's Saturday Protest in Madison was Thunda Around the Rotunda, tapping into a demographic not commonly visible in previous protests. In a notable display of unity, Gov. Walker's war on the workers brought together Harleys and Hondas (and even some scooters) around a common concern: Republican policies to concentrate wealth in the upper income wealth brackets are not in our best interests. In a roll of thunder, the bikers first lapped the capitol and then parked--so many bikes that they wrapped all the way around the square. In referencing an earlier sign at rallies "now you've pissed off Grandma," Senator Mark Miller noted that Walker's policies now have pissed off bikers as well.
