Message from your host, Janine M.: Calling all students, teachers, union members, workers, patriots, public servants, unemployed folks, progressives, and people of conscience:
In Wisconsin and around our country, the American Dream is under fierce attack. Instead of creating jobs, Republicans are giving tax breaks to corporations and the very rich and then cutting funding for education, police, emergency response and vital human services. The right to organize is on the chopping block. The American Dream is slipping out of reach for more and more Americans, and we have to fight back.
We call for emergency rallies in front of every state house this Saturday to stand in solidarity with the people of Wisconsin. We demand an end to the attacks on workers’ rights and public services across the country. We demand investment, to create decent jobs for the millions of people who desperately want to work. And we demand that the rich and powerful pay their fair share.
After decades of stagnant wages and a crushing recession, this latest assault on the American way of life is one the middle class cannot endure.
We are all Wisconsin.
We are all Americans.
This Saturday, we will stand together to save the American Dream.
