“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.
