Wisconsin protests, video still by Matt Wisniewski

University of Wisconsin student Matt Wisniewski created this video from two days of footage taken in the Wisconsin state capitol building, where teachers, fire fighters, and others have been rallying in defense of union rights for the last week.

The protests have drawn tens of thousands of public workers and their supporters in opposition to a proposed bill that would cut their wages, benefits, and right to bargain collectively. Solidarity protests have been reported in a number of other states.
