Air date: 
Tue, 03/01/2011 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe marvel at the outbreak of democracy in the American Midwest.

It's kinda nice when we remember we're strong. The extraordinary pro-worker demonstrations that started in Wisconsin two weeks ago -- and have since spread -- give lie to the conventional wisdom that the labor movement is dead. Wisconsin's new governor, Scott Walker, made busting the state public employees' union his first order of business. The union, along with sympathetic Wisconsinites of all stripes, busted him right back -- hard. And they show no sign of backing down.

And and Joe tackle the movement afoot among American workers, and look back at the history of organized labor in the United States, the (not-coincidental) rise of the middle class -- and at the decades-long campaign by the ruling class to cut them back down to size.

"It was so hard to go from the joy and communal spirit of Egypt to a congressional hearing about the implications of the Egyptian uprising on US foreign policy," says Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin about witnessing revolutionary history in Egypt. "How sad it is that those we've elected have so little regard for the most astounding people's grassroots non-violent revolution that we've seen in our lifetimes."

Hear about the amazing journey of a Code Pink's women's delegation in Egypt, and voices from Egyptian women at the barricades: Asmaa Mahfouz -- whose video plea helped spark the uprising-- and thoughts from Egyptian feminists and authors Ahdaf Soueif and Nawal El Sadaawi.
