SHUT DOWN WISCONSIN!

Shut Down Wisconsin!
by Andrea Pason and Billy Wharton, co-chairs Socialist Party USA

March 9, 2011 - It has just been reported that Wisconsin Republicans
have approved the provision in Governor Scott Walker’s Budget Repair
Bill that strips public employees in Wisconsin of their collective
bargaining rights. Collective Bargaining is necessary to the
functioning of trade unions and is a right that should be held by
every worker in both the public and private sectors. As socialists,
we condemn Governor Scott Walker and the Republicans in Wisconsin.

We call on students, workers and all who are opposed to this decision
to converge on Madison tomorrow to protest. We support the resolution
passed by the South Central Federation of Labor (Wisconsin) that calls
for a general strike of all workers in the region. We support the
immediate formation of strike committees by all union and non-union
workers in the state. We support all acts of civil disobedience and
non-compliance to protest and reverse this Bill.

Workers and students shut down Wisconsin! As popular movements
throughout the world claim their democratic rights, Walker and the
Republicans have trampled on workers in Wisconsin. By building on the
spirit of Tahrir Square, Madison can be the site where a new militant
worker’s movement is built. Our democracy is not contained within the
Assembly Houses and State Capitols; we build it in the streets!

For a General Strike of all Wisconsin Workers!
Kill the Bill!
Build Democracy in the Streets!
