Tractorcade! Farmers heading to Madison, Wisconsin, March 12, 2-4pm

As of this writing at least 2000 farmers are going to be driving their tractors into the Wisconsin state capitol this coming Saturday. The mainstream media has been avoiding this story like the plague but it’s going to be hard to ignore this. Also on Facebook, people are urging Willie Nelson and Neil Young, both Farm Aid veterans, to go and play Madison on Saturday. The revolution is on, folks, going to be interesting to watch how this event grows!

“Next week, farmers from across the dairyland will bring tractors and solidarity to the WI capitol to fight for labor rights and a just state budget. Rural communities will be disproportionately hurt by the cuts to education and badgercare, and farmers in Wisconsin stand with state workers, and all working and middle class families in the state. The event is sponsored by Family Farm Defenders, Wisconsin Farmers Union and Land Stewardship project. All farmers and eaters welcome and encouraged to come!
If you have a tractor and would like to join in the tractorcade please contact John Peck at Family Farm Defenders – (608) 260-0900; familyfarmdefenders@yahoo.com”

  3. MOO COWS of the world unite! From the heart of the dairyland you represent the mighty hooves of DEMOCRACY! Madison has always had a PROGRESSIVE SOUL and now the halls of government ring with the sound of a new PEOPLE’S MOVEMENT.

    Remember Sinclair Lewis’s IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE – we the people strike back at the CORPOS and their representative retardations currently in government. This should spread up and down the MISSISSIPPI and all feeding tributaries throughout the states –
