Saturday’s protest in Madison brought over 100,000 people to the Wisconsin Capitol to not only express rage at the passage of Governor Walker’s anti-worker bill, but also to fuel the efforts to recall Walker and other Republicans who forced the bill through. Actress Susan Sarandon joined the crowd this weekend, and she told The Nation’s John Nichols that she came to Wisconsin to thank the protesters and to remind them that the whole nation has a stake in their fight.

“We are the many and they are the few," Sarandon says, "and even though they have the wealth we have something which is as important, if not more important.” Sarandon, a union member herself, says that Walker has reminded people of the great strength they possess when mobilized.
