Pro-Union Rallies Dwarf Tea Party Anti-Union Counter-Rally

20 Feb

Multiple outlets such as FightBack! and Reuters are reporting that the Wisconsin union-led protests opposing Governor Walker’s draconian proposals to roll back workers’ right and power far outnumber the recently mobilized Tea Party groups rallying in opposition to the protests. FightBack! puts the number of primarily Tea Party protesters at “[a]about 1000,” while Reuters estimates that “no more than 5,000” Tea Party supporters were in Wisconsin yesterday. Protests are expected to continue today despite forecasts of snow and inclement weather.
