Despite a rainstorm, numerous poor and working people participated in an “(Un)Welcome Scott Walker” protest at the Milwaukee Public Museum on May 11. Sponsored by the Milwaukee Teachers Education Association, the protest was supported by many other labor and community organizations.
After the protest, the MTEA announced on its Facebook page: “Thanks to all the amazing Milwaukee Public School educators who made it out to (un)welcome Scott Walker and his guests at the Milwaukee Public Museum tonight in the less than perfect weather. We sent a message loud and clear that Walker and his supporters are not welcome in this city for their crimes against our students. It is criminal that MPS students receive thousands of dollars less in per pupil funding when compared to their surrounding suburban counterparts. We say ENOUGH!” (facebook.com/MTEAunion)
