We Are All Wisconsin

February 24, 2011 Union Movement

“We Are All Wisconsin” was the message at protests across the country in support of workers’ struggles in Wisconsin. Wisconsin’s new governor is trying to strip the right of workers to collectively bargain. Tens of thousands of Wisconsinites have been protesting in the state capital over the last two weeks. (See our blog post about it here.)

On Wednesday, we joined the DC actions outside the offices of the infamous union-busters Koch Industries and then marched to the Wisconsin governor’s office on Capitol Hill. There, we met thousands of workers and union representatives in a chorus of support for protecting the right to form unions in Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana and around the world. Check out my home video with a cameo of Lacy on the bullhorn and my pic at the end. The song “Which Side Are You On?” is written by Florence Reece and sung by Pete Seeger.

For more background on why people are taking to the streets, please see this excellent column from Harold Meyerson at the Washington Post here and The New York Times opinion here.

Own the Press was founded on the belief that news makes things happen, and you can make your own news. The big vision is that the world needs more good news to create positive change. Own the Press has three purposes:  
1. To give you the tools to makes your own news.  
2. To give you examples of good journalism.
3. To bring you good news.

You will find articles on how to own the press (tactics) in the Massey Media Toolkit.  We have organized examples of using these tactics under five rubrics.
1. Be Seen demonstrates the necessity and power of the visual.
2. Make Headlines is how to create news.
3. Place Opinions is an important, but often overlooked, way of owning the press.
4. Create Buzz Online illustrates the many ways to grow your audience.  
4.Tell Your Story is really the first and most basic skill you need to own the press.

We are glad that you have joined us in this endeavor. Together, we can change the world, one headline at a time.
