Today Friday September 7th at noon we’re singing, again,

for free speech, for our friends who have been arrested and fined, for our rights and yours, for the rights of our children.

We’re singing because freedom of speech is absolutely fundamental to democracy. Without it we are no more than cogs in the machine—no voice, no power, no access.

from Paying the Price for Free Speech by Worley Dervish

See you at the square at Noon - near Lady Forward or inside the rotunda. Madison, WI.

#Madison Volunteers Needed for Black Friday Signature Collecting at the Labor Temple, 1602 S. Park St.

Shared from a facebook friend: Signature Collecting every day at the Labor Temple, 1602 S. Park St. in Madison. Desperate help needed especially on Black Friday. Many cars lining up but some leave because of wait. Dedicated volunteers working 9am-6pm without breaks! If you can work all day, 1 hour or even stop by to give volunteers a lunch break that would be great. If you can’t help out at this location yourself, please try to send a friend or someone you know to help out. If you do go there to work check-in in Room 109 or 201C.

Nicole recorded a conversation with a DMV clerk and the video went viral. Her son was asked to show “activity” on his bank statement when he was trying to get a a VOTER ID recently…indicating that not only did he have to provide documents, but he had to have enough finances to get a voter ID. - Alarming.
