One Day Stronger

Thousands of fired-up protesters outside the Wisconsin Capitol, now apparently closed. Chants of "Our House!" and "This is what democracy looks like!" Unbelievable scene; live stream  here. Meanwhile, legal questions on last night's slimy GOP vote abound. So do hope and determination. Protester Tom Spellman, "Scott Walker is going to go down in history as one of the greatest union organizers there ever was."

From the live-chat: "There's alot more of us than them."


FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
