Solidarity Now! Wisconsin Unions Need Us All!

by

Everybody knows what’s going on in Wisconsin. Governor Scott Walker is trying to bust the state’s public employee unions, and only the courage of 14 Senate Democrats is preventing him from doing it. These Senators are taking a huge political risk to do what they’re doing: they need your support, and you can give it here.

But there’s more at stake here than Wisconsin: in the wake of the Citizens United case, unions’ voices, already muffled, are in danger of being silenced. Many states have either filed or ar readying measures as punitive as Wisconsin’s. Their passage would complete the takeover of our political system by the Koch brothers and the financial industry.

It’s time to hit the streets again, gang!

The SEIU has a list of solidarity events scheduled all over the country this week. If there’s not one near where you live, move.

Here’s a video of the people of Wisconsin – that’s Arcade Fire doing the soundtrack. Time to stand and fight, now.
