On February 21, 2011 Morello organized and performed an acoustic concert in support of the protests over collective bargaining rights in Madison. He wrote an article in Rolling Stone about his experience:
…I was certain: these people in Wisconsin are not going to give up, they are not going to give in and if there is any justice in this world these good people will defeat Governor Walker’s awful anti-union bill. This right-wing governor has tried to take advantage of a recession brought on by Wall Street malfeasance to try to ram through legislation that would roll back decades of social progress. But he and his corporate shot callers miscalculated by taking on THESE people. We didn’t ask for this fight; Governor Walker tapped us on the shoulder and said, “Let’s fight.” Okay, dude, it’s on.
