This page is an excellent resource on the events in Madison. The Wisconsin Green Party is very active in the ongoing demonstrations and there is plenty of breaking local Madison news appearing in the GP’s twitter feed.

The national Green Party issues a statement in support of unionized and public workers in Wisconsin and around the country:

Greens denounce austerity budgets, calling them a ploy to balance budgets on the backs of working people, destroy unions, and enlarge the power of corporations.
Green solution to deficits and economic recession: rescind tax cuts for the rich, end the wars and reduce military spending, enact Medicare For All and public works programs.

We’re proud to be part of the movement to protect and extend the rights of workers in South Carolina and around the world.
