This is What Democracy Looks Like: Wisconsin's Worker Uprising
From the very first protest on February 14, 2011 through the latest, Workers Independent News (WIN) has had writers and producers covering and reporting on every event at the capital. In response to those events and an overwhelming national interest in the fight for workers rights, WIN has produced the CD "This Is What Democracy Looks Like”, a radio documentary of the events from February 14 through April 1.

“This is What Democracy Looks Like: Wisconsin’s Worker Uprising” is masterful. It is an excellent documentary of the first key weeks of the Wisconsin Uprising—but it is also inspirational. The interviews, the music, the reporting of the energy and determination of the rallies and demonstrations in Wisconsin evoke hope and inspiration and the commitment to make the fundamental changes we need in our country. The Wisconsin Uprising is about mobilization against union-busting, but it goes beyond that to passionate opposition to attacks on worker rights and human rights. Every union leader and activist—indeed, every rank-and-file union member—should hear this CD and start thinking about how we can push this movement further in Wisconsin and take the energy and optimism of the Wisconsin Uprising all across our nation. State Federations and Labor Councils can play a key role in getting this CD to the people who make things happen in our movement. Do it! Four stars."
"WIN's CD on the Wisconsin Uprising captures concisely not only the chronology but also the spirit of those amazing weeks in late winter 2011 in Madison, Wisconsin. The CD is not just a 'refresher' on what all happened but also a potential tool for future actions."
Jim Cavanaugh, President, South Central Federation of Labor, Madison WI
