A Month In Madison: Eye-Witness Reports From The Wisconsin Protests Curated by Joan Juster
An evening of films, songs, photos and stories from the 2011 protests in Wisconsin with refreshment.
On February 11, 2011, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker introduced a “budget repair bill” that threatened the rights and livelihoods of Wisconsin’s labor unions, schools and citizens. The bill sparked massive, ongoing protests that have grown into the largest peaceful demonstrations in history, inspiring similar uprisings around the country.
When protesters occupied the Capitol in Madison, San Francisco documentary producer Joan Juster bought a one-way ticket to Wisconsin to document these historic events. Through films, photos and stories she gives a first-hand view of the month she spent on the front lines of the battle for Wisconsin.

Wisconsin “Budget Repair Bill” Protest (5:38) , Mike Scholtz (12:30), Cheddar Revolution - VO5 - music video (2:53), This is Happening Now!
