Schools Matter: Koch Bros. Own Wisconsin's Scott Walker and the Demonstrators Who Support Him

Koch Bros. Own Wisconsin's Scott Walker and the Demonstrators Who Support Him

The Wisconsin chapter of the Billionaire Boys Club bought themselves a governor last Fall who is proving to be a quick study for the script that the Koch henchmen have written for him. Their effort, however, to roll back labor arrangements to the 19th Century was a slight misjudgment, you might say.

The violated workers of Wisconsin and America have been been awakened from their historical anesthesia (Freire), and they are carrying the fire once more. What are two befuddled oligarchs who made their billions by poisoning our mother earth to do in the face of people re-committed to the political struggle for fairness and equality and sanity in the workplace?

City of Madison News Release

SATURDAY'S CAPITOL SQUARE DEMONSTRATIONS

Law Enforcement Praises Protesters' Conduct

On behalf of all the law enforcement agencies that helped keep the peace on the Capitol Square Saturday, a very sincere thank you to all of those who showed up to exercise their First Amendment rights. You conducted yourselves with great decorum and civility, and if the eyes of the nation were upon Wisconsin, then you have shown how democracy can flourish even amongst those who passionately disagree. As of 5:00 p.m., no major incidents had been reported. There have been no arrests. However, discourse and discussion was - at times - loud and heated. That was to be expected. As previously indicated, the goal of law enforcement has been to provide a safe environment for democracy to take place. That goal has been realized for yet another day.
