Civil Disobedience At JFC

The twitter was all active last night with tweets regarding people being carried out at the Joint Finance Committee meeting on school vouchers. Today Voces de la Frontera posted videos of their rather organized act of civil disobedience. Racinians will recognize a few familiar faces being carried out of the hearing room.

Bloggers last night and today have been weighing whether this act of non-violent civil disobedience was smart or constructive to the cause. The Siren believes that is up to the individual group to decide for themselves - Note: they get a nod of approval from John Nichols today.

Unlike the Teapartiers who fashioned themselves on real civil disobedience but only act to create dents in the grass from their lawn chairs at Americans for Prosperity fully paid productions - Voces is showing how it really is done.

Freedom of speech is messy and sometimes rude...but then so am I.
