Marching & Squirrel Hunting at Capitol

Posted by GerrysMom in Uncategorized    

Well, it doesn’t look like we’ll be done marching at the Capitol here in Madison any time soon.  Mom says a lot of people are busy marching to meetings and to places all over Wisconsin to spread the word, so the Capitol Square wasn’t as crowded the last time she took me, which I like better.  Fewer people means more squirrels on the Capitol lawn!  Mom made sure that this time my sign said something that would encourage other protestors to come say hi to me, cause last time she noticed I was kinda bummed that people weren’t paying attention to me.  But I actually didn’t get many more people to stop and pet me – and that was definitely partly because I was monitoring squirrel activity!  (They’re spies for the DOA after all).

After probably four or five laps around that last time, we went to a local pet store right off the square that has expressed solidarity with public workers – rhoohoo!  So Mom picked me up some more fish treats to use for my CGC class that just started.  Lucky for me Mom signed us up for that before all heck broke loose here, or who knows when we would have gotten around to it!

Here’s a little bit of me protesting and then heading off to the pet store!  It was a little too tricky for Mom to videotape me and march at the same time:


  1. fish treats – yum!!! be careful while you’re out – remember kent state!!! with you in spirit.

  2. An important difference between our protests and those that have gone violent is that most of our police agencies are in the same boat (or know they will be soon) and unionized. AND protestors know they know. We still have to be careful, but it helps a great deal that we SHOULD know better than to confuse the officers with the DOA. And frankly, even IF they were to call out the National Guard at some point – which I don’t think is likely – they too are friends and family of public workers, and other union members.
