'The reason you can't get democratic leaders to join [the democracy uprising] is because they agree' [that unions should be busted]. 'Right in the middle of the Madison affair, the CEO of Goldman Sacs, Lloyd Blankfein, got a $12.5 million bonus and his base pay was more than tripled.'

'It was heartening to see that there are tens of thousands protesting in Madison... That's the beginning, maybe, of what we really need here, a democracy uprising. Democracy has almost been eviscerated.'

The next election is going to break all campaign spending records at over $2 billion for Barack 'Bipartisan Compromise' Obama's campaign, the man's whose 2008 campaign was overwhelmingly funded by (big surprise) Wall Street.

Wisconsin Budget Repair Bill Protest from Matt Wisniewski on Vimeo.
Matt Wisniewski, a 22-year-old college student at the University of Wisconsin, put together this inspiring video in support of unions in Wisconsin. The video consists of three days of footage of the 30,000 protesters at the state capitol in Madison against a bill that would drastically curb the bargaining power of public employees in unions. The accompanying song is Arcade Fire’s “Rebellion (Lies).”
