The Reverend Jesse Jackson led the rally in a prayer for earthquake-ravished Japan and working families in the class warfare struggle.

“April 4 is the anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King,” Rev. Jackson told the crowd. “On April 5, we have to come alive…” Jackson then led over 100,000 people at the rally in the chant: “Come a-liiive—April fiiive! Come a-live! April 5…”

“This is completely overwhelming! What an incredible privilege to be standing in the footsteps of the Wisconsin 14,” Monk Star and Wisconsinite Tony Shalhoub humbly remarked at the We Are Wisconsin Rally in Madison on Saturday. “They are what democracy looks like,” he chanted to the crowd. "...This is the beginning of a national movement..."

Mimicking Republican insults about public employees, Wisconsin native Tony Shalhoub introduced his sister as “this thug, this lazy-assed malcontent good-for-nothing bully” and then clarified that she is a teacher in Green Bay. “So what do you think? Dangerous and self-serving, right? No! She’s a teacher and she’s adorable…The vast majority of Wisconsinites do not support the agenda of soon-to-be-former Governor Walker !”
