Reportback from the Wisconsin Uprising

Published Jimmy - Mon, 08/01/2011 - 7:25pm

On Wednesday, August 3rd starting at 7pm the Civic Media Center will host an eyewitness/participant reportback from the recent months-long political battle over labor and economic issues in the state of Wisconsin. Local activist and organizer Joe Richard has spent the last 5 months in Madison and around the state of Wisconsin, sleeping in the occupied Capitol building, traveling across the state, organizing protests and union mobilizations, and participating in the fight to defend public sector unions and affected communities from the right wing austerity agenda of Republican Governor Scott Walker.

Come join in a discussion of the state of the movement, the practical lessons to be learned from the fight, how to move our struggle forward, and how we might be able to bring a little bit of Wisconsin to Florida.
