I've been listening to blog readers say for years, "But what can I do?"

This week, we have plenty. You want rallies? We got rallies. All over America, people will be standing tall in solidarity with the Wisconsin and Ohio public sector strikers this Saturday. MoveOn has called for rallies at 50 statehouses this Saturday, Feb. 26, at noon.

But wait, there's more! You can also stand up this Saturday to be counted with the workers of the United Kingdom and Europe, who will be demonstrating against their countries' austerity cuts.

In solidarity with UKUncut, USUncut will be holding rallies this Saturday across the country. (Look for your state here.) They focus on corporations that pay little or no taxes while services for the rest of us are cut (hence the name). Remember, 72% of foreign and 57% of US corporations pay no tax in USA. Join the Facebook group here! Remember: If 13 hedge fund managers were taxed like the rest of us, they'd fund 300,000 teachers.

Here are the some of the other rallies I found:
