Medea Benjamin writes: "Here in Madison, Wisconsin, where protesters have occupied the State Capitol Building to stop the pending bill that would eliminate workers' right to collective bargaining, echoes of Cairo are everywhere. Protesters here were elated by the photo of an Egyptian engineer named Muhammad Saladin Nusair holding a sign in Tahrir Square saying 'Egypt Supports Wisconsin Workers - One World, One Pain.'"

Comments   

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Make sure that you bring this up with everyone you talk to. Every time you speak with someone, no matter how briefly, somehow work in the message that we need to stand up to those that seek to exploit us for monetary gain and greed. Stand up to the political lackeys and their corporate masters. Use common sense not political labels.

"the garlic pizza he was eating had come from supporters in Cairo" This gives you a hope - humanity all over the World has basic needs and ambitions.
Abolish military - occupation by foreign troops (mostly US and Israeli ..)
IT IS WORLD REVOLUTION.

Our Egyptian brothers and sisters are leading by example. Walk like an Egyptian! They are showing that goodness and peace can win (we hope and pray).

I have always believed that the PEOPLE of a country are separate and distinct from the so-called LEADERS. And the PEOPLE usually are very much like you and me.
This display of global solidarity brings tears to my eyes. I wish I could be in WI to show my support. I continue to pray for the Godless Old Pimps, who callously pimp out their constituents to make brownie points with their party leaders, the military-indust rial complex.

I have tremendous respect and admiration to the young people who have figured all this out and have decided that their future is worth taking some chances at doing the right thing and working together to force a better future for everyone.

International solidarity - what a concept! Trading ideas about "best practices" is a nuance I didn't expect, but that will lead to more effective societies, and it seems to be moving quickly. The eloquence displayed in many of the communications is truly astounding!

We have a memorable new beginning, but please move forward with all deliberate speed an conviction.
