Tractorcade

March 12, 2011 @ 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

On Saturday, March 12, family farmers from across the dairyland will bring tractors and solidarity to the Wisconsin Capitol to fight for collective bargaining rights and a just state budget.

Family farmers and rural communitites will be disproportionately hurt by the cuts to Badercare and education, and family farmers in Wisconsin stand with state workers, and all working and middle class families in the state.

Farmers taking their tractors to the event will gather in a downtown Madison parking lot and drive their tractors to the capitol. Anyone interested in driving their tractor or providing a tractor for another farmer to drive should contact Greeno at (715) 463-7634.

You can also help farmers come to Madison on Saturday by making a donation to the Farmer Labor Tractorcade Fund. Contributions will be used to offset expenses incured by farmers attending the event.
