"Dogs for Wisconsin"

Wisconsin is seeing red.



Ever since Gov. Scott Walker (R) introduced his "Budget Repair Bill," which takes away most collective bargaining rights from public employees, people in Wisconsin have been rallying around the State Capitol in Madison. Many bring their children, some bring their dogs and make them wear protest signs.







This one reads: "The only good walker is a dog walker."




People  around the country (and their dogs) show solidarity.  
They organize rallies and send pizza donations




After almost a month of peaceful, yet forceful demonstrations,  the bill was passed yesterday.
