Large and Growing Protests in Wisconsin Capitol Opposing Gov. Walker’s Draconian Anti-Union, Anti-Worker Proposals

18 Feb

As part of our continued coverage of and linking for the mounting protests in Madison, Wisconsin, here are some good story links well worth reading:

Democracy Now!’s very good February 18, 2011 show

Jane McAlevey’s excellent piece at The Nation‘s web site, “Labor’s Last Stand”

Good but brief on-the-ground blurb from Milwaukee social studies teacher Christopher Fons at CounterPunch

Kevin Drum of Mother Jones puts his finger on part of the big political and electoral picture

Check with local labor and activist contacts near you for caravans leaving this weekend for Madison, WI, and Columbus, OH, where similar legislative provisions loom in that fairly right-wing state.
