MoveOn joined with the following individuals/groups (Van Jones, USAction/ TrueMajority, Color of Change, PCCC, CREDO, Democracy for America, National People's Action, Center for Community Change, Courage Campaign, and Progressive Majority) across the country to show our solidarity with the workers in Wisconsin. Republican Governor Walker is attempting to break the unions there, and other states with Republican governors will... be attempting the same strong-arm tactics if we don't stand up now.
The country needs to stand behind these heroic individuals demonstrating in Madison. The middle class is shrinking and we need to draw our line in the sand now. Republicans have no use for unions, especially ones that have the best interests of children and aged at heart.
This is a zgraphix production.
Produced for Austin Indymedia by Jeff Zavala.
Austin Indymedia is a grassroots media collective committed to providing an outlet for the circulation of voices and messages that are systematically marginalized by mainstream media. Austin Indymedia refuses to hide behind a false sense of objectivity and promotes media-making as a tool for social, economic, and environmental justice. We seek to provide alternatives to for-profit media not only in our coverage, but also within our collective by implementing consensus decision making, non-hierarchical and non-specialized work methods. Austin Indymedia allows for open publishing, encourages community collaboration, and helps open access to the tools necessary to engage in grassroots media-making. These processes ensure that the means are consistent with the end - a world based in community, cooperation and sustainability.
