This film documents the days, weeks and months in 2011, when Wisconsinites fought back against power, authority and injustice. They were fighting back against newly elected Republican Governor Scott Walker’s action stripping collective bargaining rights from public employees. This struggle took place in the same period as the Arab Spring, and people in both struggles saw their common fight. A discussion will follow the showing.

There will also be literature available as well as copies of the dvd for purchase.
