Co-ops join the fight at Fighting Bob Fest

On Saturday, September 17th, 15,000 people congregated at the Alliant Center in Madison for the 10th annual Fighting Bob Fest. In the past, this event was always held in farm fields near Baraboo. This year, for the first time, it took place in Madison.

Occupy Madison, don’t just demand a solution

A personal commentary by the editor

Woody Allen once said that half of success is showing up. The Occupy Madison movement has shown up, and for every person on site, there are hundreds more who are there in spirit. We in Wisconsin know all too well what corporate interests and their political puppets are willing to do to the working class. Thank you for your energy and commitment.

Documentary on worker-owned firms to include members of MadWorC

Since 1987, Moving Images Video Project has produced and distributed TV documentaries that encourage peace, human rights, global justice, and protection for the environment. This organization will be filming portions of a new PBS documen­tary called “Shift Change” in Madison from November 10th to the 12th. This film will be about worker cooperatives and their relationship to the local economy.
