It was early 2011 in the State of Wisconsin in the USA. The Republican Party, which had become much more conservative in recent years, had, for the first time in decades taken complete control of the reigns of state government as a result of the last election. Suddenly the Republicans were rolling out an agenda that was aimed directly at destroying the state’s public sector unions – something that had not been a significant issue in the previous year’s election. Small protests rapidly became very large ones where well over 100,000 people gathered at the capitol square give voice to the Republican Party’s agenda. This is a photo of one of those protests. It has been digitally enhanced to emphasize the gritty determination of the protestors. A sign in the hands of one of the protesters gives the photo its name and this post its title.
