Rachel Maddow has had truly excellent commentary of protests in Madison, WI on her show. You can view/listen to the videos here. Sorry, there is no transcript or captions.

Some news articles:

Coverage of Saturday's protest at Huffington Post

Madison Metro (bus system) could lose 45 million dollars in federal funding

The bill's impact on Medicaid

It's nigh on impossible for me to do a link round-up about the protests going on right now by Wisconsin's public employees.

Luckily, the Internet has done most of it.
The Wheeler Report has links to all press coverage by WI newspapers, and press releases by legislators, the Governor, and state agencies.

The Isthmus has a guide to social media campaigns against Scott Walker, including comprehensive lists of Facebook events, Facebook groups, Twitter feeds, and groups/sites for a recall of Scott Walker. There's also a list of satirical Twitter accounts.

This morning, the Cap Times posted did post an article titled, "Labor Activists strategize for 'class war' ignited by Walker budget bill." The article is here.

Lastly, if you want longer posts about the current status of the Budget Repair Bill *right now,* I recommend Wispolitics' Budget Blog.


If you have more links, post in the comments. I know there are some Flickr feeds missing from the Isthmus's list of social media.
