John Nichols with Jesse Jackson on the Square this afternoon
Nichols -- of the Capital Times and the Nation magazine -- was great on the Ed Show on MSNBC last night. Very strongly pointed out that Walker's "crisis" is not about money but about busting unions. Corporations first attacked the private sector unions by sending so many of their jobs abroad through NAFTA etc. Now they're going after the public sector. But it's a united "divide and conquer" attack on all working people.
Jackson will be speaking tonight at the WEAC rally that starts at the Capitol at 5:00 p.m.
