Hundreds Worldwide Order Pizza for Wisconsin Capitol Protesters


It all started with one call from an anonymous Californian, requesting that local pizza shop, Ian’s on State Street, deliver a pizza to the protesters camped out since last Monday in the Wisconsin State Capitol, which is just two blocks away. This one call made early last week has snowballed all the way across the globe with over 30 states and over 10 countries ordering more than 500 pizza for the protesters — including one call from Cairo, Egypt.
