Uprising in Tucson with John Nichols of The Nation
John Nichols, The Nation Magazine author, MSNBC Contributor and author of Uprising: How Wisconsin Renewed the Politics of Protest, from Madison to Wall Street, will be the keynote speaker at a special event sponsored by the Pima Area Labor Federation and Progressive Democrats of America Tucson Chapter.
Considering the Arizona Legislature's current attack on union workers, civil servants, workers under 20 years old, and workers who earn tips, this is a very important presentation.
Check out these two articles for more information about the current attack on Arizona's middle class:

Michael Moore says: "John Nichols recognized right away that the fight in Wisconsin was about a lot more than one state. It was the fight we had all been waiting for, the one where people say, 'We have had it!'"
