This week marks the fifth anniversary of the start of the historic uprising in Madison Wisconsin—the mass occupation of the state capitol to protest Gov. Walker’s Draconian anti-labor agenda. Ben Manski, a veteran leader and organizer of citizen action in Madison, will be our guest on the radio this week, to recall the events and explore their meanings and impacts. It was a singing movement, and so of course, we’ll hear some of the songs as we converse.
