Beloit, Wisconsin, Protests Gov. Scott Walker


Residents marched the streets of Beloit, Wisconsin, earlier this week in opposition to Gov. Scott Walker’s union-busting legislation. Chants and posters showed solidarity with teachers and workers and with the thousands protesting around the country. The message was clear, unions’ rights to exist are non-negotiable.
