I can't believe the story I just read (see link at end of post). As protests continue in Wisconsin to maintain workers' rights--specifically the right to collectively bargain--someone realized that the protesters might be a bit hungry. So they ordered a pizza from Ian's on State St. to be delivered to the Capitol building where some people have spent 5 days and nights trying to convince Governor Walker to change his tune. (i won't go into politics here, but let's just say that the bill he introduced has caused an uproar!)
People from 12 other countries and 38 states have followed suit. Ian's has always supported local farmers, businesses, and made a darn good pizza, but now I love Ian's even more. They are working hand in hand with people around the world, non-stop (I went into the very crowded State Street location Saturday with my family, and the workers are literally running around making pizza as fast as they can), to support the rights of all of Wisconsin's families.
I have always believed that food is what binds us, unites us and brings people together in peace. Maybe Scott Walker needs a slice of Solidarity Pizza.
