Wisconsin Crackdown

As important and revolutionary as the events in Libya and Egypt are, I'm wondering if North American media are diverting attention to North Africa at the expense of one of the biggest stories regarding labour and collective rights occurring right now in Wisconsin.

There has been almost no mainstream coverage of the draconian crackdown on union rights by Governor Scott Walker, nor reports on one of the biggest labour protests in recent history (100, 000 protesters alone on Tuesday and more expected this weekend).

Democracy Now has the most footage and interviews:
