MADISON WISCONSIN: First video from the struggle

The first video from the struggle currently taking place in Wisconsin against fascism is now available and can be found at You Tube. What we will try to do at Substance is cover as much as we can with first hand reporting and videos as this long term struggle begins thanks to our brothers and sisters in the unions of Wisconsin. As of this writing (February 18, 2011, midnight), the number of people in Madison is increasing, and more schools in Wisconsin are closing as more and more working people realize that this fight has to be won through our power as people, and not through lawyers, lobbyists, and with other tools that have been forged and which are controlled by the ruling class.

Already, just as in Cairo and elsewhere, there are more stories about the struggle of our brothers and sisters in Wisconsin than any news and analysis website can possible share, but from this point on Substance will be posting as many stories as we get, with as much video and photo, under the heading MADISON WISCONSIN, STRUGGLE FOR DEMOCRACY 2011. The URL to the You Tube video above is

Anyone who has the time and energy now that the weather is a bit warmer can get to Madison Wisconsin and join the people there in our common struggle against American fascism.

Wisconsin Solidarity @ Daley Plaza 5pm

If you didn't know, Jobs with Justice is sponsoring a 5pm Daley Rally in support of Wisconsin unionists. That is from the CORE announcement list, though I don't see it on JwJ website, or anything on CTU website.
