Report and photos from Pat Gowens, Welfare Warriors
We had fun. A big surprise at the welfare department: the Security Guards allowed us to walk all over the building handing out flyers and singing our song! Usually they throw us out pretty quickly so we usually move rapidly to reach as many folks as possible with the info. I think the protests in Madison have caused this amazing new attitude!
