US, Madison — The city of Madison is seeing the largest protests in decades as people speak up against Republican attacks on public sector workers, unions, collective bargaining and Democrats. The Republican campaign is clearly a political attack on Democrats, but also an attack on unions in a very pro-union city and state. Tens of thousands have turned out to protest on the grounds of the State Capitol and inside the building. Protesters have been joined by teachers and government workers who are striking in the form of sick outs.
