The Nightwatchman aims to help recall Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker

The Nightwatchman aims to help recall Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker

Tom Morello has posted the 20th edition of his 'The Nightwatchman Speaks' video series and in it he reveals that he’s planning on returning to Wisconsin next month to once again rally support against Governor Scott Walker and his policies.

Back in February 2011, Morello traveled to Madison and staged a rally against Governor Walker, who was at the time attempting to pass a bill that would effectively eliminate the rights of state employees to collectively bargain and thus destroy all civil servant unions.

He the new video Morello proclaims, "I am returning to Wisconsin and I am bringing some musician friends, but it will not be Rage Against the Machine sadly. I asked Rage and they were unable to play. So the Nightwatchman will be returning to an event called the ‘Recall Ball,’ which is going to be happening again. Myself and my comrade-in-arms, Tim [McIlrath] from Rise Against, will be there. Brother Ali will be playing, Street Dogs will be there, and Jackson Browne will be lending his services as well as we will be playing June 1 at the ‘Recall Ball.’”

Walker is facing a recall vote against Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett due to his legislation. Walker is also believed to be under investigation for bid-rigging when he served as Milwaukee County Executive.

Jackson Browne said: “Working people across America watched aghast as Gov. Scott Walker struck down the right to collectively bargain for Wisconsin State employees,” Browne said on his website. “It’s up to the people of Wisconsin to remove Walker from office, but the fight is an American fight, for a basic American right. I’m coming to Wisconsin to help get out the vote. Recall Scott Walker!”

Morello says in the video, "We’ll be gathering a lot of people just to raise money, but we’ll be gathering canvasers to go door-to-door. The election I believe will be decided by the turnout so we’re using our efforts to get as many people in favorable communities to turn out. But I promise, Scott Walker, look out cause the Nightwatchman is back in that ass.”

In his latest video session, Morello also recaps the Chicago National Nurses United Rally and expresses his views on extremist free speech.

Morello was one of performers at the National Nurses United Rally in Chicago's Daley Plaza on May 18th. Chicago mayor Rahm Emmanuel attempted to revoke the event permit after hearing of Morello's involvement. According to PeoplesWorld.org, the musician told the crowd, “They couldn’t shut us down, because we stood up. It was a few politicians, skeevy lawyers, and some trembling NATO generals who caved in. If NATO, the defender of the free world, is afraid of a musician with an acoustic guitar and some nurses, we’re in a lot of trouble.”

Morello grew up in a Chicago household that supported unions. Morello is a member of the Los Angeles Musicians’ Union Local 147.

Morello recently sat down for a riveting interview with the great Bill Moyers:
