February 11th is coming (The anniversary of Scott Walker “Dropping The Bomb” on Wisconsin)
I thought Wisconsin readers would appreciate an early warning.
For my non-Wisconsin readers, “the bomb” refers to the austerity and union-busting measures that Walker initially called a “Budget Repair Bill”.
I know some of you will revel in the memory of the very first protest in Appleton, Wisconsin which sprang up outside of the newspaper offices of the local newspaper where Scott Walker was giving an interview.

Two years after the historic Wisconsin Uprising, “the fire still burns!” The struggle to protect quality public education and workers’ rights continues in our state and our communities. Please join the TAA and UFAS (United Faculty and Academic Staff) on Thursday, February 14th starting at Library Mall at 4:30 pm for a march to the Capitol at 5:00 pm.
The Solidarity Sing Along will gather outside the Capitol at 4:45 pm. “The fire still burns” candlelight vigil, organized by Madison Teachers Inc. (MTI), will begin at 5:15 pm. After the gathering around the Capitol, we’ll move to Brocach on the square from 6 pm-12 am for a Solidarity Celebration, commemorating the day that sparked the Wisconsin Uprising. Participants of the uprising are doing amazing things all over Madison and beyond… let’s get together again! Come out to support the TAA and all your local allies!

1. Any dialogue from the loss of workers rights being discussed anywhere? I know we hear about
capitol singers being ticketed, but what if any has this had on workers rights? I have to wonder if leading up to this uprising, if all the legislation and those legislators who support a right to work environment were all ready working to some extents... i.e.. if you see something say something to weed out workers who were not going to help with the right to work environments....
