This video from the USa is called Madison Capitol Unions March Evening of February 17.
Wisconsin, USA: Saturday’s demonstration in Madison against attacks on public employees was the largest of nearly two weeks of consecutive protests and continuous occupation of the state capitol building. At its peak in the afternoon, upwards of 100,000 demonstrators braved bitterly cold and snowy weather, completely filling the streets, sidewalks and lawn on Capitol Square, overflowing into side streets and packing to capacity the capitol itself: here.
Andy Kroll, TomDispatch: “The call reportedly arrived from Cairo. Pizza for the protesters, the voice said. It was Saturday, February 20th, and by then Ian’s Pizza on State Street in Madison, Wisconsin, was overwhelmed. One employee had been assigned the sole task of answering the phone and taking down orders. And in they came, from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, from Morocco, Haiti, Turkey, Belgium, Uganda, China, New Zealand, and even a research station in Antarctica. More than 50 countries around the globe. Ian’s couldn’t make pizza fast enough, and the generosity of distant strangers with credit cards was paying for it all”: here.
E.J. Dionne Jr.: “This is not the first time that Wisconsin has been at the center of national agitation over the role of unions. The earlier battle was staged in Sheboygan at Kohler, the legendary manufacturer of kitchen, bath and furniture products. The employees at Kohler had voted to join the United Auto Workers union, and a strike that began in April 1954 was not settled until the early 1960s”: here.
