Pizza Power!

According to Politico:

Someone in Egypt has been paying attention to what’s happening in Madison and wanted to send a message of solidarity from across the globe—so they ordered a pizza. It might seem like a small gesture, but it’s overwhelming to the staff at Ian’s on State Street—a campus staple mere blocks from the Capitol—where in the last few days, they’ve fielded calls from concerned citizens of 12 countries, and 38 out of 50 states looking to donate money to provide free pizza to the Wisconsinites who have congregated here.

Anyone ever heard of anything like this happening before???

    As the recipient of one such pizza at the protest, I am touched and grateful. A delivery person from Roman Candle pizzeria came down to the capitol and handed out six or seven pizzas to anybody holding pro-union signs and told us each who they were from and where. I shared my delicious pepperoni pizza with a dozen or so fellow marchers.

    This forms of public support of the strikers, have been typicall in any major conflict. Solidarity is always the first feeling to surface in this ocassions. However, it is true that I never heard of people delivering pizza. Here in Argentina, is really recurrent the implementation of what is known as “Popular Cooking pots” which are improvised with the elements provided by the neighboards and fellow participants in the strike, and feed all the those involved in the protests and sometimes their childrens. I bet that this kind of experience was present in the USA as well, but given the lack of practice in last couple of years made you fotgot them. We salute the Wisconsinites who are leading the way of the defense of their rights to their fellow americans.
