MADISON, Wis. - Democrats and organizers filed petitions Tuesday with more than a million signatures as they sought to force a recall election against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker _ a massive number that seems to cement a historic recall election against him for later this year.
It would mark the first such gubernatorial recall in state history and would be only the third gubernatorial recall election in U.S. history. Organizers Tuesday also handed in 845,000 signatures against Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch as well as petitions against four GOP state senators, including Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald of Juneau
These kinds of things that still give me hope - the Mass Strike is still on and even expanding. Do away with reactionary union busters like Scott Walker, good riddance. Remenber, the first thing both Mussolini and Hitler did upon siezing the power is to destroy all Labor Unions as the only mass organisations capable of resisting the Oligarchy.
...over 25 Occupy Wall Street protesters have been arrested today at a foreclosure auction protest in Brooklyn this afternoon. According to John Knefel, over 80 people crammed into Brooklyn Supreme Court to sing songs and blockade the foreclosure sales, and it seemingly worked: "4 cops just said the auction was cancelled. #ows now being forced to leave. could it be a ruse? #blockade." Check out a video of protesters singing in the courthouse here, and below.
As people are being asked to leave the courthouse, Knefel just tweeted that confusion still reigns: "Update: just spoke w someone who was in court before, said that the auction DID keep happening. #ows #blockade...Court officer I just spoke w wouldn't confirm one way or the other. Said to ask people leaving what they "felt" happened." OWS protesters have been involved with trying to help homeless families hold onto foreclosed homes around Brooklyn since late last year.
According to Anonymous Oakland, the blockade was at least partially successful: "Foreclosure auction in Brooklyn disrupted, 26 reported arrests, only 1 of 4 homes sold. #blockade #OWS." We'll update as information becomes more clear.
Has Ex Goldman Sachs Staff turned Democrat Campaigner Infiltrated Occupy?
one would expect such a thing to occur... might have been from the start. aren't the guys who were behind the other movements around the world invloved with OWS anyway? they have an entire working plan they syndicate.
this is not to say the majority of members participating aren't honestly in this for the right reasons.
