Welcome to Cairo

Reader Bellafiore comments:

The revolution has begun in Wisconsin. Teachers are fighting back at the cutbacks and political situation right now. See this article for details on what is happening right now. Facebook and Twitter have been instrumental in getting the word out to educators to fight for our rights. The teachers union has organized polls and communications on Facebook which have allowed not just teachers but all citizen of WI to weigh in. This is an instance where the social media has helped mobilize a movement against the governor and for teacher rights. One of my favorite signs in Madison, WI rally was one that said: Welcome to Cairo!

  1. Maybe your union is more active than mine...I quit the union last year due to their inaction and lack of interest in the teacher. Very disappointed, but good for those in WI to fight for what they believe!
