Some media coverage from Tuesday’s Protest rallies

Let’s just say it’s been a very busy day. This is getting international coverage, so it’s a bit overwhelming to get all of it available in one post.

Now to some of the coverage. Let’s start with Democracy Now:

Wisconsin Governor Threatens to Use National Guard Against State Workers

Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker has proposed a bill that would eliminate almost all collective bargaining rights for most public workers as well as slash pay and cut benefits with no negotiation. Walker has also notified the state’s National Guard to be on alert for actions taken by unsatisfied state, county and municipal employees. Journalist John Nichols has been writing about the governor’s power grab in The Nation magazine.

John Nichols: “It’s easily the most radical assault on labor unions, particularly public labor unions, but really labor in general, that any Republican has initiated in decades, and it’s caused an incredible outcry in Wisconsin. There have already been a number of major demonstrations. There are expected to be many more. But this is coming to a head quickly.”


WISC-TV coverage:

Wisconsin Public Radio has some great reports:

Thousands rally at Capitol to protest Governor’s budget repair proposal
Thousands of union workers and their supporters gathered at the state Capitol today and yesterday calling on legislators to vote against Governor Scott Walker’s plan to strip them of their collective bargaining rights. Gil Halsted reports.

Republican laborers attack Walker’s plan
Some politically conservative members of the state public employees union say Governor Scott Walker’s plan to strip their bargaining rights is a radical departure from the traditional conservative agenda. Gil Halsted reports.

More reports are coming. For all of you participating, get some rest because tomorrow is another big day!
