John Nichols: How Wisconsin Renewed the Politics of Protest
On the anniversary of the Wisconsin protests, journalist John Nichols describes how they led to the biggest labor rallies since the 1930s. In February 2011, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker moved to strip collective-bargaining rights from public-sector workers; now Nichols, author of Uprising, discusses how conservatives are trying to revoke unionizing rights nationwide in an assault coordinated by privatizers and billionaire political donors and how ordinary people are fighting back. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life with University Book Store. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola.
