Hallo friends!
We in Germany have the same ideas like you in USA:
Fight for freedom, real democtarcy and human rights.
To do this in a citizen way is the ideaa from the humans in Tunesia uns Egypt. Now we habe a global movenment in many countries in all continents. We becme more power when we commected. We have the chances of digitality - to do the global nunviolent denmcratic revoltuin.
You in USA, you have your good history with your revolution. We saw in Tunesia and Egyt today how it functioned. We learn togehter and do it togehter.
The nonviolent power of ethics win.

Solidaritay from Washington State! WE are with you Wisconsin. Hang in there and keep up the fight. We all have your backs out here in the Northwest! Holding a solidarity concert on Saturday June 18th at Eagan's Ballard Jazz club.

Lothar, I could not agree with you more. One thing you have in Germany, that we desperately need in the USA is a National Union. One of the jobs of a government is to help business, but their main job is to protect the people from being abused by big business, like we are seeing here in Madison Wisconsin. Non violent protest has great power, but we need to balance the sides. Too many of our Legislatures are owned by big business, and are not doing their main job of protecting us.

You aren't alone. Spain is protesting both the inaction (or bad actions of it's nominally Socialist govt and the recent elections of a conservative coalition govt in most country-wide municipal and regional elections:

Greetings from Long Island. As a retired union member who would have had a decent retirement. I too am facing the pinch of corporate economics very simply rob the working poor and give to the rich Robin of the Hood in reverse.
