Orders for pizza have been pouring in from around the globe to feed the folks in Madison who are protesting in support of workers’ rights … Ian’s Pizza has suspended normal business to handle the volume of orders for pizza to be sent to demonstrators.
The UW Teaching Assistants’ Association also has a page listing other local businesses which have donated food and supplies. I have an especial fondness for co-ops, part of the great midwestern tradition of progressive grassroots action, so i would like to give a shout-out to the Willy Street Coop. I talked to a nice young man there (hi Dan!) and he said they are doing gift cards as well as food donations. I know if i were at the Capitol, as much as i love pizza, i’d sure love some fresh fruit & veggies, trail mix, etc.
And coffee! Don’t forget the coffee!

It is truly heartwarming to see the wave of support and care these hard-working Americans are receiving, unions protect rights for all of us. If the unions are crushed, they’re coming for us next.
