International Support for Madison Uprising by Buying Pizza at Ian’s on State Street for Marchers

Filed under: Scott Walker — millerlf @ 5:06 pm

Ian’s on State Street — a small pizza place near the Capitol — has been fielding calls from citizens of twelve countries and thirty-eight states looking to donate free pizza to the Wisconsinites who have congregated to protest Scott Walker’s proposed legislation reducing the rights and pay of state workers. After promoting the cause on Twitter and Facebook, Ian’s gave away 1,057 donated slices yesterday and delivered more than 300 pizzas. The blackboard behind the counter now has a running list of places where donations have come from, and it includes China and Egypt.

  1. I hope that those workers get their rights and that the legislation does not get approved!
