Madison, March 14 (RHC)– In the U.S. state of Wisconsin, more than 100,000 people filled the streets of Madison over the weekend in what has been described as the state’s largest protest ever.
The massive rally was held one day after Republican Gov. Scott Walker signed a bill to strip most workers of their right to collectively bargain.
The AFL-CIO put the size of the crowd on Saturday at 185,000.
Speakers at the rally included many of the 14 Democratic senators who had fled the state three weeks ago in an attempt to stall the legislation.
